B, it happens often enough that I know the code better than the reviewer and realise (obvious) fixes necessary or that I really should add those comments I was too lazy for.
However that should not be taken as a prohibition for reviewers or other developers to apply if they are impatient for some reason.
I don't see any real issue with review happening also on the -cvslog list, it's sometimes all I have time to read so that will happen anyway (as with the JV demuxer), so why hinder people my making up many rules?
