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 ;-)
