I have received/noted these additional reviews:

Andreas Schafer <gentryx_at_[hidden]>
Antony Polukhin <antoshkka_at_[hidden]>
Giovanni Piero Deretta <gpderetta_at_[hidden]>

If you are still working on a review that you would like to be
considered, let me know. Otherwise, I'll be summarizing the results in a
future mail.
