I think it would be nice if that patch keyword could be set by non-admins.
This would mean I didn't have to write to the mailing list asking for people
to look at
some specific bug. Like "did someone look at
http://bugs.python.org/issue2122. This isssue is about mmap.flush not
raising an exception on errors. which I think is a rather severe". (btw. can
someone please look at it? :) )
