	Nah - as Bjoern says this is only for non-trivial patches that the
reviewer is not confident about and that would prolly benefit from a day
of delay to allow a specialist in the given area to jump in and do the
work; clearly interacting / forwarding to the right person etc. is a
good idea here.

	Heh ;-) it's about the above subset of patches that some are worried
about going into master without enough review.

	Lets see how the gerrit flow helps as/when it comes. What I hated wrt.
the CWS process was it's huge amount of round-trips. If there is a
sausage machine that (as a committer) I can choose to push to, that
after building on <n> platforms auto-pushes that to master, I'd be dead
pleased. It means I can do more risky cross-platform changes more
quickly, and queue them up back to back - knowing I'm not going to bust
other people's builds ;-)

	Of course, if we start finding new contributors' patches taking much
longer to merge, we should re-visit ;-) IIRC we decided to re-discuss
this at a later date.
