Testing before committing is (or should be) good practice, not just
personal bias.  I always at least rebuild Emacs, even if it's just a
typo in a comment, before committing.  I was doing that with CVS as
well.  There's nothing more embarrassing than botching the build by
committing untested changes.

Yes, I think we should do that.  I'm doing all my quick-fixing stuff
in the trunk directly.
