Thanks. I'd really like to see the Drupal project advance a bit faster
than it does now.

Currently, I am often not sure if it is worth my time to work on a
specific bug/feature as I have not much of an idea if (and when!) it
will make it to core. I guess there are more people like me.

Would be nice, yes.

Well, you can subscribe to the Drupal project and get all those things
mailed. Some procmail magic might even sort the image.inc mails into the
right mailbox. I know, not really what you want.

Yeah, like the message_access() patch. ;)

And no, I don't think I'd like to introduce the kind of bureaucrazy that
Nedjo proposed. ;)
