... which, indeed, is precisely what Andres is asserting, no? I do
not understand your conclusion.
If the threshold is "more than one vote to revert", I'm sure that can
be arranged. For the most part I think people have assumed that if
one senior hacker complains about something, it's not really necessary
for other people to duplicate that person's review effort. We don't
have a surplus of manpower available for such things, and I believe
most of us are going flat out right now anyway trying to get ready
for beta. Duplicate reviews are hard to come by.
