And then no again. If you, as a contributor, re-release the MIT licensed 
stuff under GPL you can commit it. I believe that such a re-release is 
possible with certain MIT type licenses.

If you choose this route, you shoudl probably document it rather well.

In general, we'd prefer you'd not do it, I guess.
