This is now.  Please make no checkins to the release22-maint branch
unless you're an Appointed Wizard (me, Jack, Tim, Fred) or have been
asked to by an Appointed Wizard.

Especially given the -checkins situation.


 Very clever implementation techniques are required to implement this

 with this feature used and abused east and west is exceptionally
 exciting to debug.       -- Erik Naggum on Algol-style "call-by-name"
