I doubt I'm the only one who assumed that anything but
a change suggestion would be counterproductive; that it
would just be adding a "me too" that slowed down the 
person who could actually check the patch in.

If reviews from anyone are welcome, it wouldn't hurt 
to mention that a few more places.  Ideally, it would
be in the:

(1)  boilerplate that you see when looking at a patch
(2)  boilerplate at the top of a list of patches
<URL: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=5470&atid=305470 >
(3)  developer documentation.  (I can sort of find it in 
<URL: http://www.python.org/dev/dev_intro.html#helping-out >, 
but didn't see it until I was already looking specifically 
for information on patch reviews.)
(4)  pre-announce for a new alpha release.
