While I agree with non-trivial patches being *posted* for review, I
don't agree that an actual review should happen in order for a patch to
be committed. That's unless we get 10x the number of reviewers we
currently have.

(and you certainly know by experience that I would be glad to have
reviews on my patches, especially the network-related ones ;-))
