i imagine you technically would be able to commit wherever you please,
but if you dumped a bunch of buggy code in somewhere without having it
reviewed by the maintainer(s) you'd get yelled at just as much as you
would now. :)

this is a social thing; we enforce patch review socially in plasma
now, and we would continue to do so, although we'd probably raise the
bar a bit once features can all be developed in spring branches and
not just unversioned on someone's hard drive.
