Yes, but there is nothing wrong with asking for a few set of eyeballs to
have a look at code before checking it in.

I am very comfortable complaining or reverting what I think is bad code
getting checked in. OTOH, if you want to post patches and ask for review
*before* you commit, I don't mind at all.

I think it's a matter of coder's confidence in the code in question.

But yeah, it's good to clarify that if you got a commit bit, you don't
*need* to wait for +1s, review, or anything else before landing changes.
