Re: [Committed] Use special-purpose hash table to speed up walk_tree


    Yes, but I do have the authority to approve patches.  If we had a 
    no-offline-approval policy, what would have happenned is that Matt would 
    have posted the patch, and I would have immediately approved it.  That's 
    no different that me approving the patch offline; we would still have 
    had a broken patch committed to the tree.

I agree.  The purpose of posting patches to gcc-patches is indeed to have
many sets of eyes look at it, but many of those are after the patch is
checked in.  That's the case whether the patch is one written by somebody
with global write privs, approved on-list, or approved off-list.
