That would be awesome. Despite my past obstinacy, I'm particularly
attracted to the part where PMC members would be able to directly
commit their signatures to the release area, where something (an
svnpubsub instance?) then verifies the sigs.

In addition to working with Infra, release.py would probably need to be updated.
