Hold off: work said yes about the contributor agreement and then as soon
as I'd agreed to it, said 'no, wait for legal'. I'm now acting as if I
hadn't agreed to it, and waiting for legal. For weeks and weeks. Even
though dozens of people in my department have already signed it. Sigh.

Sorry about this :( I'll rebase against trunk and repost once I'm
actually allowed to push this exciting one-character change.
