We also take the general policy of not landing things we've not seen
execute, otherwise we've found we end up with a bunch of non working
tests, because they aren't executed, a refactor happens, they don't get
caught, fail....

So landing additional function means we need some data on it running.
That means either something in infra (ideally, it can be a periodic and
not an every patch sort of thing) though we can also handle that with
something coming back on 3rd party testing.
