Probably.  I can't enforce it with technical means, but I suppose we could
use the Etherpad to review patches and if two or more non-core devs agree
that the patch looks sane (and doesn't remove functionality, etc.) the
patch could be pushed.

That leaves the question of who to grant access to.  You and Calvin are
two that come to mind, but I would need poeple to agree that they won't
"go rogue" and just start pushing unreviewed patches. ;-)
