I think the supporters of code review readily accept that: in return
for the higher effort, they say, we also get more quality.

So it's really a quality vs. quantity thing. It would be easy to just
commit all patches that are uploaded to roundup, but of course, it
would horribly break Python. With mandatory code review, even less
patches get reviewed than today.
