I got the impression from earlier threads that many (most?) folk were in favour of reviewing
all commits. If this is the case, then rule on cheating is simple: cheat only when you think
you can justify it to others in a review. If you can't justify it, don't do it.

For example, if we have a standard that requires methods be, for example, less than 10 lines
long, if I committed a change with a new method of 20 lines, I'd have to argue why it makes
sense to keep it that size, rather than split it down into two or more smaller methods. 

(this is just an example, not a standards proposal :)

David.
