I have a working patch here.
at least +1 nth, probably +1 blocker (per the 'do any partitioning you like' criterion)
definitely +1 nth, weak +1 blocker...
So doing a slightly fuzzy count as we're firing off an anaconda build here and it'd be a shame to miss this - that's +1 from dlehman (anaconda), +1 from nirik (releng) and +1 from me (qa), so accepted NTH at least.
