Yeah, we just need to enforce the social rule about always asking  
permission before committing to someone else's area, on this list or  
directly.  There isn't really a big threat to Miller's code since he  
maintains it in his own git repository.  Changes committed to trunk/ 
pd would just be overwritten.  And of course, we can always reverse  
the changes...
