A LOT of people do not run SVN or -fixes versions, but packaged setups. 
Forcing all those folks to start checking out from SVN, or even compiling 
fixes trees, would more than likely cause more traffic on this list than a 
simple IP mapping hack.

However, I suspect that there will be enough other changes to make such a 
simple hack non-workable. Let's hope the various packagers do their usual 
good job of keeping up with changes.
