    This doesn't work -- there is no BK _push_ to Linus. There is no "sent
    to BK for approval."

    Traditional RFC822 email is sent to Linus, telling him that there are BK
    changesets to be picked up. A human-defined length of time ensues,
    after which Linus either ignores or comments on the email, and either
    does a 'bk pull' or not.

    Very similar to the way GNU patches are handled, strangely enough ;-)
