I have nothing against Brian personally, but I have a process question: Has
he previously gotten patches accepted to the stdlib, or is this a
preemptive request? I think the usual route is to grant commit access after
the stream of patches from a contributor has taken the form of a steady
stream (or at least trickle)
of high-quality patches, and the core committers are tired of committing on
that person's behalf and confident that the contributor will seek review
when appropriate.
