Not sure how well 'tit for tat' schemes work - we *could* require
that people don't commit unreviewed changes, and also require that
you can't commit unless you have reviewed somebody else's changes.

So if you do 10 reviews, you are entitled to 10 commits...

Of course, that would put more burden on those people who already
do all the work.
