Sure.  So, this is therefore not a big deal, regardless of who is doing 
that merge (on the Linaro or Ubuntu side) right?

Hence my question again: what is that added effort people are afraid of?  
This must not be the Ubuntu sauce given John's experience.

I'm seeing some speculations wrt increased effort and would like to help 
finding solutions if there is actually a problem.
