I'd wager it has no effect on module developers at all, but
increases the number of people who get involved with core.

Certainly I'm not about to spend time on core hacking when
I'm not sure if the Magic Hand of Dries(tm) will approve it
in the end.  Obviously if he doesn't, I'm wasting my time.

But if I'm contributing to an agreed project, that worry no
longer applies.  I don't mind having stuff sent back if it's
wrongly formatted, but I would mind having something for core
written and then rejected as not something Dries wants to
commit for some other reason.

[Maybe Dries never does that.  I have no idea one way or another.
That, in its own way, is yet another reason for this idea to go
