I'm happy to extend the review period, but there are two potential
problems :

1) the GUID review is slated to start April 23rd. I don't expect that
there would be significant crosstalk between these two reviews, but
it doesn't seem to be the norm to have two reviews running concurrently.

2) I will be on vacation from April 20th-27th. On second thought,
since, as review manager I don't really have to do much until the end
of the review, I would be fine having the review run until the 27th.
That would give me the weekend to digest posts...

I'll inquire with the review wizards as to whether it would be
acceptable to have some overlap between this review and the GUID review.
