As a foreshadowing of what might happen, remember the valid complaints
we got about people who fix bugs not being listed as much in the release
notes.  Listing people's names was a secondary goal of the release notes
so we didn't change our policy.

If we do that list, there is going to be controversy about who is
listed, but we have had the list up for a long time and had few problems
so hopefully it will go fine.
