Any policy which permits a 3000 line code drop, whether to the
regression tests or otherwise, without prior discussion is, IMHO, a
very bad policy.  It's not as if regression tests never break anything
or cause any problems.  Do they need the same level of review as WARM
or rewriting the executor's expression evaluation?  No.  Does that
mean that they should totally bypass all of the review and discussion
that we do for other patches?  No.
