Hi Eno,

You are right, this not always works well. But even if it works
sometimes, I think it worth to give it a chance. After all it may safe a
lot of time, efforts and create better code. This may be even more
important when the original authors are available and can provide
information about their considerations. I recall your comments on the
fixes I submitted in Xml - they were very helpful.

It sounds reasonable only if everyone is ready to "sign"
certificates for each of non-trivial patches so that he or she
has assured that each does not break anything.

I don't think such "review" work well. It should be fine if someone
who broke tests fix the problem, or just revert in case it was
impossible. That's what has happened to such patches that are
accompanied by "please review the patch" posts.

The same amount of "massive" patches happen to mcs/gmcs land
without any approvals from the maintainers, kinda everyday.
