Yeah, we learned this lesson hard way with CGLE.

One reason I like Randy is that he has taste _and_ guts to
say to me that "this patch stinks, I am not going to include it".
If I were to maintain cgl tree, being the mercenary I am, I would
probably go for the "all" road and end up with a total disaster.

And if you think about it, saying "no" is the key part of what Linus
is doing.
