I think it's interesting. Having to store patches on the wiki (and
those which aren't, on the mailing list) is a bit prone to confusion.
You get patches for tip, for instance, which is hardly a tag you can
target. We might also get fewer people whining that a feature should
be in trunk.

Obviously if we do decide we want something like this it would be
better for this to go in the official dmenu hg repo. What are others'
thoughts on this?
