No, but I did my part, which is sending them for review.

I would, if there was a reason to.

When have I ever done that?

Not for remote-{bzr,hg}. I've yet to see anybody claim they would
review the patches thoroughly, if only they were given time. I've yet
to see anybody claim they would review the patches thoroughly under
any circumstance at all. And by that I mean the patches that really
would benefit from reviewing.

Yes, but is that the case *HERE*? And no, single line changes that are
trivial and obvious don't count. Show me an important patch that
surely would benefit from reviewing that doesn't have sufficient
explanation. Show me an important patch that anybody is not convinced
is a good patch. In the remote-{hg,bzr} context.

If there isn't any, I don't see why remote-{bzr,hg} should slow down.

For this patch, I don't care one iota.
