That's fairly close IMO, but to be clearer, it's not meant to be a
sandbox where _all_ CGL features are merged.
It's more for giving exposure to features that won't make it into
mainline IMO, like Streams (maybe) and LKCD.

BTW, where did Tim say this?

You could add it to a clone of the cgl tree since it's available
from osdl.org.  Or someone could download the cgl patch file from
sf.net and locally add whatever patch they want to test.
That way one wouldn't have to do all of the integration again.

But I'd still like to see someone do a POSIX interfaces patch set,
as was proposed in the CGL WG,
and then it would make sense for you to use that.

I can understand how some confusion would arise.
