I agree with Eli here, this is what branches are for. Daniel, if you think
they have cultural baggage that makes them distasteful, that's a different
problem. Branches are a perfectly acceptable tool, and they give us an easy
way to assess progress as the work develops.

Please submit your code to a branch, and we'll ask everyone who's capable to
begin testing on as many platforms as we can find. Once enough time has passed
and no one has complained, it can move to master.
