OTOH I don't see much of a cost either to having folks with
rarely-used commit rights (I am one myself :-), and I do see a risk in
placing the bar for commit rights too high (I don't want the Python
committers to be "growing old together"). So I think that it's enough
to require that someone is interested (always assuming we trust them).

I don't know Nadeem or his work so I'd abstain on this specific vote,
but the number of +1 votes (and lack of counter-votes) from people I
trust is enough for me.
