He, several of us would like it too (although for short patches it
doesn't really make a difference), but what's missing is some kind of
Roundup integration. Something as trivial as a "start review" button in
front of every uploaded patch file would do the trick; it has been
suggested several times already, but what's needed is someone to write
the code :)
