Nor is it fair to lump a ton of additional work on volunteers who aren't
interested in doing it.  <Shrug>  Were a veto to be used it'd probably
be discussed a fair bit and I imagine there'd be an opportunity for
someone to stand up and take up the release work for the
about-to-be-veto'd arch.

The problem is getting someone to actually do it.
