First comes responsibilty then power IMHO. I have seen patches blindly
committed by Dries, because there were good and deep reviews attached to
the bug reports. As far as I see Drupal is open, having the possibilty
to modify any details in a bug report is one of the pieces allowing you
to drive the process to wherever you see fit.
