Sure, and who do you mean by "people"?  Presumably Stefan, Yidong, et
al.  I don't think that having Stefan merge Eli's changes is efficient
use of anybody's time.  Use of bundles might make contribution by
occasional contributors more efficient, but I don't think it addresses
the problem that some core developers are bottlenecking on bzr/Savannah.

AFAIK Stefan et al are already as willing to accept merge directives
as any other form of patch.  It wouldn't hurt to advertise that
option, of course.  But I really don't think it's a solution to the
current bottleneck.
