This would be a very interesting way to handle Circle 4, and I
personally would like it.  It would definitely speed up the snail's
paced development so far (not that there is anything wrong with that,
but I think that people like new versions of code on a regular

However, I don't know how willing Jeremy (and George) would be to
release the reigns, so to speak, and let others have some control of
the code.

An alternative would be to split the codebase, but then it wouldn't be
circle anymore.  Fragmentation in development can be a bad thing
(though sometimes good, such as egcs).  But it is probably best if we
pool our efforts... assuming we can decide on design issues and such ;)
