I think that the model of reviewing is working and I like it.  What I  
don't like is the requirement to physically apply every patch and run  
a full build.  I feel that a careful read of the patch is good enough  
for trunk and tends to spur collaboration and communication that was  
the original intent of switching to RTC.

For micro releases, I taking a more conservative approach may be  
warranted, but I honestly don't see how applying a patch and building  
it is going to find more error.  For example, the NPEs you pointed  
out are likely to only be found by testing user applications, and  
when we do find one a test case should be added to prevent regressions.
