At the traditional freeze time the common developer has much more power
for fixing bugs in other peoples' packages than he has right now at
no-freeze.  If we redefine freeze, we'd better also redefine the powers
of the common developer.

There are many simple bugs out there waiting to be squashed.  It's just
so damn hard to get a fix in that it's rarely worth the trouble.
