My apologies if I misunderstood what you were saying. If we can make it
easier to iterate that would address 95% of my current frustrations with the
process of contributing.

 No argument. But the Twisted code standards are high and usually have a
high number of iterations to get any fix in...if we can get out of the stone
age of shuffling patch files around and get to some form of push/pull system
that would reduce a lot of my heartburn about "do this...OK looks good...now
do this too and integrate with ticket XYZ...great almost there...I think you
should do this now too...".
