There are several "casual contributors" and developers who don't (yet) have 
commit access. I believe it would benefit the project, if we simplified 
things for them and also simplified the patch related workflow. E.g. it 
would be nice, if Trac could present an overview of pending patches, help 
with reviewing them, and maybe even provide a "Commit" (and "Test build and 
commit" :-)) button.
