My point is just that the patch queue tells us approximately how many
patches have whithered and died.

I agree that we have a patch review problem.  I don't think it is as
serious now as it has been in the past, but I think it is serious.  I
have proposed, on IRC, some ideas which I think would help.  Either
way, I would strongly resist any sort of "implicitly approved" rule.
