... 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.
