I don't think that duplicating data in two systems and pushing it back  
and forth via an RPC mechanism is what Dave had in mind when he was  
speaking of tight integration.  We need to *streamline* the process of  
uploading and reviewing a patch, and having two different ways to do  
this seems like a large step in the opposite direction.
