I don't think that was the conclusion.  What I thought we were saying
was that we didn't want to bounce those patches in advance of any CF
review at all.  But IMO we should put the larger patches on a very short
leash: if they don't appear pretty clean and trouble-free, they should
get postponed.  We need to minimize the time spent on new patches, but
we don't have to drive it to zero.
