i think it might be a real good idea to set up a similar system that we used
for core forms api conversion, so you don't have to manage a gazillion
patches.  i've been working with bzr for a while now to maintain a big core
patch, and i like it a lot.  i've been looking for a good test case to use
it in a small group development situation, and think this might be the
perfect situation.  would you be interested in giving it a whirl?  benefits
would be:

1. way easier for you to manage the submissions from multiple coders
2. more information for the drupal community on the potential usefullness of
bzr as a code management tool

i think jblack would be willing to help us get things set up for this, and i
would be willing to pitch in some conversion help if we went this route.
