We would not release this until each change in it has been reviewed by
the community, right?  Otherwise we may end up with changes in a 0.20
release that don't get approved when they're contributed to trunk and
cause trunk to regress.  So I don't yet see the point of committing the
mega patch since the community needs to review each individual change
anyway, so we might wait until each is reviewed to commit it.

That said, posting the mega patch is useful, so that folks can start to
pick it apart into separate issues.  Pushing your internal commits to a
public github branch might also make that review process easier.
