I think it was a good idea to call it the scariest patch rather than
something more severe sounding. Having the poll only be half-serious
is a good way to avoid self-censorship, and emphasizes that we're
concerned about bugs that cause serious instability to the system as a
whole. We're less concerned about the overall number of bugs in any
given patch.

I would have appreciated more scope to say how confident I am in my
prediction, and how scary in absolute terms I consider the scariest
patches to be.
