Also, the Incubator has the responsibility to watch a podling
and determine if it should continue. Certainly this would imply
that it has the responsibility to do so at the start. Plus,
the Incubator has the responsibility for the "acceptance"
of the new project. I just think that a RTC policy is
better than a CTR policy for that acceptance, for the same
reason we do so with code: stability and reliability.
