Sorry my meta-comments snuck in - they aren't relevant, and I didn't
follow my own advice...I retract them (I'm sure you can tell what
parts they were).

As I've been fiddling around with a patch or two, my jhbuild has been
broken due to x86_64 Xephyr F9 brokenness that's been recently fixed
(thanks dodji, if you're listening, and cjb/marco for pushing), so
please count me among those contributors who only have an XO

After restarting X/Sugar so often to test patches for #6995, I've
developed an itch for a Sugar-shell-REPL in Pippy, or something
similar.  Perhaps that's one way for people in the field to tinker.
Of course there are diff/code browsing issues still.
