well, wouldn't the best way to do that be to leave all non-trivial maintenance of a
given component to an existing external community?

(after all, the number of non-python-dev python contributors are *much* larger
than the number of python-dev contributors).

I mean, we're not really talking about ordinary leak-elimination or portability-fixing
or security-hole-plugging maintenance; it's the let's-extend-the-api-in-incompatible-
ways and fork-because-we-can stuff that I'm worried about.
