I meant to say something when this was originally floated but got 
distracted. I think the idea of those kinda tools are good, I have even 
used similar ( maybe even it was the the one ) tools previously for 
reviewing and found them really good. However I would say that I think 
these work best in a closed environment,  by closed I mean a tight group 
that are the reviewers that control the whole thing. The disadvantages 
for us I see is the need for a new list to subscribe to ( who needs yet 
another list ) or having to have an account in some webserver that hosts 
the tool(s)
Posting to the dev list to me remains in my view the most inclusive way 
of doing reviews, it's process light, everyone gets to see what 
happening, and most importantly ( imo ) all can learn from the reviews ( 
it's real easy to dip-in/out of any review thread as you wish )
I really wish to stress the 'learn' aspect because I think reviews are a 
key way for people to learn about the code ( no joke I think I learn 
something new every day on this list from the reviews that I read ) imho 
we should make it as easy for people to be exposed to the reviews as 

just my 2 whatever
