Hi Tom,

It's a good idea, but I'm afraid it will chase away developers if
we lock things down too much.  Most of the people work on what they
want to work on.  What your suggesting sounds an awful lot like
hey lets make the developers focus on things we want them to focus on.

I'm not saying we shouldn't try it but remember opensource != comercial
development.  Over blender's history I think that the appropriate things
have been developed at the right time.  I don't think we have a problem
there.  I do think we need more patch review and that patch review
is good.  It's not a fun job though...  We can incourage this, but lets
keep it in mind that you can't force dev's to do something you'll just
chase them away...
