Sorry, that wasn't meant to be offensive.

It is going around a process.  That said, not everyone has committed
to using that process.  So, you're right.  It isn't "cheating".

All I'm advocating is using the commit queue much more often.

I don't have any control over when my code hits the trunk.  Somehow, it all
works out in the end.
