Some of this, though, is just the problem of having too few
maintainers for some areas.  E.g., there is no active libcpp
maintainer.  Instead libcpp patches wait for Mark to have a few spare
moments to do a review.  I'm sure the more complicated libcpp patches
suffer for this... but it seems unlikely to me that post-commit review
would help this.  In fact, it may make it worse, since I'd imagine
many patches would simply go without a review.  This, I fear, would
lead to directionless maintenance.

Yeah, universal patch review is a good idea IMO.  But that may make
things even worse :-(
