Yes, exactly. And the power stays balanced because the committers as a
group selected the pumpkin in the first place by approving their
proposed release plan. Actually, there are lots of potential benefits,
IMO-- we have a clear plan to follow, there's a shepherd to push or
reign-in as needed, and we can give users a clear(er) idea about what
changes to expect and when to expect them.

I agree. IRC has its place, but once an idea goes past the "watercooler
talk" stage, we should really drag it out into the light, where the
archives can capture the discussion. Note too that the the use of a
STATUS file should help in this regard, as well.
