Pardon me -- I fell ill on Friday, so I couldn't get to this. I'm 
running a draft by Kevin now, and once he and I are sure what it should 
say, I'll post here, get y'all's review, and post it!

I think I'll use this photo at the top of 
the post, since "grafting" is kind of like what it means to bring new 
contributors totally into the fold of an open source project.

-- Asheesh.
