This seems fine to me, except it adds yet another layer of complexity to the
review process. I think getting patches landed more quickly is probably
worth it though. This is essentially a slightly more complicated (but easier
to implement?) version of Maciej's proposal from a few weeks ago to get rid

One benefit over the above is that, I don't think we need to restrict
commit+ to people with svn commit bit, as long as a patch is r+'ed or r+'ed
with modifications.
