A design-approval flag?

	Often people get an r- on their patches because of a
fundamental design problem.

	I think it would be nice to catch these things before people
post a patch.

	I was thinking that *optionally*, people could request
"design-approval?" on a bug when they had posted a comment or an
attachment that described *what* they wanted to do and *how* they
wanted to do it. You wouldn't *have* to set this flag, but if you got a
design-approval+, that would let you know that the proposal was good
and it would probably be accepted if worked upon.

	I would add this to Bugzilla:Developers on the wiki so people
would know to set it.

	Does this sound like a good idea?
