It would be interesting if such a system could be made to work simply,
but I am afraid that isn't possible. What happens now is that as people
post email comments about the patches, I add the emails to the patches
queue. It would be interesting to put comments on the patches
themselves, but in many cases the opinions about patches are too candid
to put in public so committers email each other to give status reports.
