Absolutely -- and thanks for the offer!

But of course, contributed code can't ever entirely take the burden
off the other committers, because they still have to review &
understand the change. This is true even if someday the contributor
becomes a committer themselves.

So yah, feel free to post a patch (or a design first), the simpler the
better. I mainly wanted to warn you that it would be a tough sell,
since I don't know your particular "risk of wasted time" threshold.
Now that you know, it's entirely your call.

Good luck,
-Karl
