That's true, but the accessibility directory should be committed so all
the diffs are in svn basically, then blind developers can sometimes look
at this directory and see what needs work.
- Hopefully this will get more people doing work on accessibility
related stuff
- And the patches are all there...

So if some are out of sync hopefully since the accessibility directory
would be in everyone's svn trunk since that should be part of svn more
people we see it and hopefully want to work on it...
