I just want to make sure the people who end up making the new vcs
style packaging option available to keep the transition initial
condition in mind.  We will need a best practices document to help
educate people to move patches over the 'right' way.  We want that
sort of transitional document available before this goes live for
contributors to use. It will be much easier to re-educate people
before they build new bad habits.  Not impossible, but we just can't
forget to do this.
