I like the idea of having the discussions go on via bugzilla rather than
in the patch list ... but unfortunately for submitting patches I have 
never been able to attach a patch to bugzilla, and I worry about patches
being "buried" and getting lost until someone goes and gets into their
bugzilla bugs.  With the exception of the occasional burst of activity,
I don't find that the cdt-patch list is terribly full of traffic.
