Heh, yes!

I'm aware of problems with the existing setup -- in fact, my first
few patches were delayed by half a week because I had problems
setting it up.  Quite apart from the loss of time, that was a huge
drain on my energy and motivation.

A week ago, I started investigating alternatives.  As always, my
primary motivation is *not* adding any additional burden to our
experienced developers.  I have not yet reached the point at which
it would be useful to discuss any proposals on -devel, though.

(As we can see from the 2013 emails, a very wide-ranging
discussion quickly becomes bogged down and fails to produce
results.  If anybody is very interested in the "alternatives"
question and is willing to do 2-5 hours of work that will probably
end up being discarded, feel free to contact me off-list.)
