[Bf-committers] Cheap Tweak Mode

Well, I can think of two possible reasons to go via tuhopuu:

1. It allows non-programmers to test and use the patch in a full build.  
Even though it's simple, it is somewhat experimental - is there any 
other "quick/implicit mode switch" like this in Blender?  Regardless, it 
allows more people to test it in real-world situations and answer 
Chris's question about whether or not this is desirable.  The testing 
and migration to the main codebase can surely be done prior to the next 

2. Chris does most (if not all!) of the work for tuhopuu merges, for 
which all tuhopuu people are eternally grateful! :-)  If anyone can 
manage a test period in tuhopuu prior to migrating to the main codebase 
then surely it's him! :-)  Personally, I think that more stuff should go 
through tuhopuu first.  While committing something like this directly 
into the main codebase doesn't necessarily undermine tuhopuu, surely 
going via tuhopuu with as many new features as possible will not do it 
any harm.  It may even be helpful for the morale of less-experienced 
developers to have more tuhopuu success stories.
