A problem with the policy "trivial things can just be pushed" is that "trivial" 
is open for interpretation.  Even a change that was intended to affect only 
comments could have a bad impact if, say, it inserts an accidental stray 
character and is not tested sufficiently.

James' report demonstrates that even if multiple devs agree that a change is 
trivial, it should still be tested before being pushed.
