They're included for a few weeks.  `x' to make them go away.

Well, that's also nice, but for virtually all patches we get (which are
to the Lisp bits), running a "make" in the current tree is sufficient to
see whether the patch is whack or not.  No need to wait for a result
from an integration server.

("make test" if you want to be all modern and hang with the cool kids.)

Sending patches is really easy, even for kids these days.

Yes, it would be, but we're displaying the discussion threaded, so that
kinda happens naturally.  It would be nice to have a way to mark exactly
what message contains the most current version of the patch, though.
