Just to explore this further; what's the threat if code is reviewed after
it's committed?  So long as those with commit access agree to a set of
principles (as I started with yesterday, I haven't read all my messages yet
to see if there's been responses), I don't see the problem.  I do see
something we could add to those principles - there should never be an
argument to the extent of "well it's already committed, so there's nothing
that can be done about it".  We should not be afraid to make mistakes, and
roll back patches or fix code in the tree if one was made.
