+1. I have integrated quite a few of Dmitry's patches in the past.

I'd just like to invite him to discuss potentially non trivial changes with 
the authors/mainteners of the areas he will hack into or, for broader changes, 
with the PSC. 

For example, looking at http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/search?q=bishop , I see  :
* http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/attachment/ticket/3557/ogr_mi_vsil.patch make 
changes in the MITAB library, whose GDAL is a downstream. The usual process is 
to make sure that the changes are pushed first in upstream MITAB CVS
* http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/4463 : internal'izing an external library 
is something to assess carefully. This introduces additionnal maintenance 
issues (security fixes, refresh policy&process, potential issues of symbol 
conflicts when an application link both to GDAL and the library, etc...)
