Think of the code we can't release because of the encumberances.
If we have to make changes in that code, we need to get reviews,
but we can't ask the community for help with those reviews.

Clearly the less code we have that we can't put in the open the
better.  But as long as that set is non-empty, it's something we
have to deal with, internally.
