I know for the Win32 port I committed things in parts, e.g. fix absolute
path detection.  It would have been impossible to submit one large patch
to do the entire Win32 port, and in fact the feature spread over two
major releases.  I think if someone took on a similar-sized project we
would just have to give them CVS commit access.
