Right, doing it all in master is also an option. I take it you favor that
approach? I'll admit it is attractive.

It felt like it might be the one with the least resistance and work.

Because I first didn't clearly say no and I didn't stop it when the first
commit went in.

Yeah. Or if not a week, we could have the opening of the feature window to be

consider it so. Then it could be made a week if we need it, or just three days
for the times when we consider that good enough...
