Ah, sure. That was a short job and can certainly be kicked out again later.

Sorry, my bad.

That 'discuss' part was added at some stage to please people who
wanted more review of patches.

Me, I don't like long discussions on code and I very dislike blocking
code reviews, as they push towards a slower process with larger
changes (in fact the larger the patch the easier it passes a code
review, often).

You make dozens or hundreds of cycles starting with blank paper and
each time adding part of the API. You start with a minimal piece of
code and you add to it little by little.

The solution is *always* release ready. That's the whole point. Even
if you solve 1 problem cleanly, it's release ready.

Look at how zbeacon evolved as an example. It's quite clear.

Now compare to e.g. ztree (a class we shipped and then I killed), and
you'll see the difference.
