	During a normal freeze, we don't do anything in particular. During a QA
freeze, we limit the checkins to me, LpSolit, myk, and justdave,
usually. That's when *nothing* should go in, because we're going through

	We use Despot to do it, somehow. Justdave would know the specifics
better than I.

	Well, only for bugs that have certain flags set, such as blocking2.20+
-- that could be useful.
