Yes, I agree that trunk is fine, as they shouldn't break anything else,
and I don't plan on breaking the bindings themselves either. Small,
safe, well tested commits.

Suggestions of a branch have just been modesty - as I'd rather have
something here upstream over nothing.

Once they are in, I would appreciate svn commit access for both Jeff and I.

We could agree to not make commits that change files outside of
src/optional/python-bindings, we'll send such patches to the list as usual.

Further, depending on the nature of the change we would still send many
changes to the list for audit first, and make the commit ourselves once
we feel it is acceptable. We can develop some balanced guidelines here,
and we're willing to learn about the usual balance this community
follows. We want to be maintainers of this component, but maintainers
who work with the full community.
