If that's the case, then great -- introducing "official" roles and
titles doesn't make sense unless we actually find they're needed. My
feeling was that the bindings were just that tiny bit removed from the
core (and require special knowledge about the scripting languages that
the core doesn't) that dubing bindings maintainers would help. If
everybody pitches in as is the case with the core, that's even better.

Adding test suites, etc. for the bindings will be a great help here, of
