If (almost) all you do is code movement, and if you at least have a
build environment to test that part, I wouldn't be too nervous. Once
there is a final patch series, I could certainly see to help trying it
out before committing (just please be sure to have a small note in
there to lower the chances that I forget).

Well, I'm supposedly tied up all Wednesday morning and will then
soon be heading to the airport. So the only reasonable chance would
be right after the dev meeting, which is expected to end around 1pm.
