Hi Jon - 

You are correct that we need something featherweight for 
very specific features/changes. I know that it's not 
optimal, but for right now the process for things like 
this is to add a feature request (preferably w/patch) 
to the collector. 

My hope is that some of the other things going on will 
allow us to be better about getting to those things. I 
expect to still try to get the community involved in 
those small decisions (voting, etc. on the dev list). 

Hopefully that will be good enough to hold us for a 
little while - I'm open to feedback on how we might 
improve this (though for the immediate near term I 
prefer to focus the bulk of effort on working out 
kinks in the process for larger projects).
