I think it could help avoid mistakes, but it might cause some
complications. I asked Christoph to post patches with the appropriate
Reviewed-by:/Acked-by:/etc. line because I'm in a timezone that's
fairly far from him and most committers. I sometimes get behind on
xen-devel mail and it's possible that a committer might commit a
posted patch before I reply on the list, and we'd lose a valuable bit
of audit trail in the history.
