... he also proposed to then commit it again for some future release
cycle, and what then?  Revert it again if it turns out to have any
bugs, and commit it a third time in some release cycle after that?
It's a big, invasive patch.  I don't think we want it going in and out
of the tree repeatedly.  More generally, I don't think there's ever a
time when it's OK to commit a patch that you're not willing to put at
least some effort into fixing up afterwards.
