I have the same issues (work getting busy just at the time of an interesting
review), and I think this is a good solution. It still keeps the good
concentrated discussion during the review period, but gives more people time
to take a proper look.
I'd also like to see a policy where the docs are on the web somewhere so I
can click-and-skim the tutorial or examples to see if the library solves a
problem I have and is therefore worth downloading and trying out.
