So what actually is the difference between these.  I'm guessing this  
usage, but it would be nice if this were written in stone somewhere on  
the wiki:

Acked - I agree with the general idea of what you're doing
Reviewed - I looked at your changes, and it looks right
Signed-off - I reviewed and tried your changes, it doesn't bork my  
use, and it looks right in general
