[PATCH] add PROPOSAL email to HACKING

It seems that there is little advice as to the route for a non-commiter
when wishing to propose a revision or issue be ported to a branch.
It makes sense to use the dev@ list and a similar process to [PATCH];
something like [PROPOSAL]. Below is a first take at documenting
this method.

 meant to be brief summaries to help a reader get oriented; please
 don't use the STATUS file for actual discussion, use dev@ instead.
 
-Here's an example, probably as complex as an entry would ever get:
+Where a non-committer wishes to propose a change for inclusion they
+should email a proposal to `dev@subversion.tigris.org', with a subject
+line that contains the word "PROPOSAL" in all uppercase, for example:
 
+ Subject: [PROPOSAL] port something cool issue#12345 to branch 1.1.x

+Here's an example of a STATUS file entry, probably as complex as an
+entry would ever get:

    * r98765 (issue #56789)
      Make commit editor take a closure object for future mindreading.
      Justification: API stability, as prep for future enhancement.
