Um, it's hard to vote on something theoretical. If you has produced a
release candidate tarball, I'm sure you would have gotten the 3 votes
necessary to make 1.1.1 with just that patch in.

Nah. Anyone (even a non-committer) can produce a tarball of Subversion -
that's why we have the dist.sh script. However, only the committers *as a
group* can produce a release. I can't automatically produce a release by
myself. Neither can you. Neither can Ben. But, working together, we can
indeed produce a release. =)
