Umm, the spacing code overhaul *did* start off on a separate
branch. IIRC Joe worked on it there for 3 or 4 months before it

Yes, Carl is excellent. I'm certain that he will do a fine job of
cherry-picking patches, taking 2-5 hours a week of his time.
That's time that he's not writing code, review patches, helping
new contributors, or doing other things like his actual day job or
spending time with his family.
I don't feel at all good about dumping this task on him. I
seriously think that most people are underestimating the amount of
work it will be.
Hopefully I'm wrong. I still haven't spent the time to understand
the git branching/merging stuff, so maybe it will be a breeze.
