Can we split by Component as well? So for example, there will be queues for
"WebCore [Mac]", "WebCore", "Accessibility [Gtk]" etc.. and treat
non-bracketed patch queues as patches that affect core, non-platform
specific code?

In addition, is it possible maybe to send a weekly or forthnightly
"outstanding review requests" to webkit-dev?
