I would like to suggest a new feature for RB: the ability to ignore a
review request.

The problem:
I've found that more often than not, my review requests will simply be
ignored by some of the reviewers.
The reason may vary (too busy, not familiar with the code base, plain
lazy), but it all comes down to the fact that not all reviewers will
actually review the code.

Possible solution:
Add a "Ignore request" option/button.
This can be something parallel to the "Ship it!" feature. This way, a
review resolution may be split into two:
1. Approved by reviewer.
2. Ignored by reviewer.
An ideal review request will be closed when all reviewers are either
approved or ignored it.
