    Moreover, it's fairly easy to test stuff that's all in one place, in a
    consistent format, with a simple linear stack of patches to sort through
    to find culprits.

    Plus you have a great tendency of dropping stuff like a stone when it's
    broken, which helps a lot. Having some basic pre-mainline-merge testing
    keeps the quality of mainline way up.

    It'd help more if people focused more on testing their own shit before
    submitting it than complaining about -mm. If it's the same people breaking
    the tree all the time, I'm sure we can find a recycled set of stocks
