people with write access are trusted already, dont they?
if they commit to code they know very well, they dont need to send
patches to list first, i think.if they are unusure about change,
or they have patches for code they dont know in deep then they
will send patch first, even if no rules enforcing them to do so.

this is why we trust these people enough for giving them write access.
at least i did so in mplayer cvs, and it worked.

other developers/maintainers still can review tehse commits and
revert if they donlt agree, but i dont think it will happen often.

we dont need any commiter team or automatic bot, the trusted developers
are clever enough to commit their code when they know it is ok.
