"BUG FIXES ONLY" does not include new features.

You can ask for permission to merge a new feature. If it has been
stable in trunk for awhile and is otherwise low risk, then we may OK a
merge. But we are playing catch up for a release that was supposed to
be done at the beginning of the month, so are trying to avoid anything
that will result in further delays.
