Another thought: we could look at filling the patch countdown in
order of priority (plus some amount of discretionary judgement if
a patch has been waiting for a long time).  I didn't do this in
the last patch countdown, but I'm now thinking that I should have
done this.

One consequence of this interpretation of the Priority field means
that we should probably remove priority-postponed.  I mean, if
somebody *does* come by and start working on ancient music, I
don't want to "penalize" having his patches being reviewed just
because nobody's been working on ancient music in the past few

The more that I think about it, the more I like this
interpretation of the Priority field.
