+1...I don't think it's too onerous of a recommendation to have a 2nd
person with CVS commit access. Might not necessarily happen, but
perhaps when we get some more time we can institute a review process
that scans for inactive (i.e. no commits) projects every quarter.

Now, disagreement from the community as a whole about the direction of
the module....I'll bring THAT up in a separate issue, because I know
of one case where it is currently a huge issue.
