IIRC Jeff had mentioned that SmartBear might be willing to provide licensing for Boost (or opensource .. it is all fuzzy). I believe Jeff was in contact with them... but my memory might be failing (Jeff?? Are you there?)

Looks really cool. I don't think it would replace reviews on the list, but it would make the code and documentation review much, much nicer.
Don't think it'll really help the part that review managers are involved with either - again if anyone has seen tools for looking at hundreds of messages in their threads and how they quote from each other, please let me know.
