This is a valuable aspect of the review process that I had not considered...

I'm actually at the point where I'm willing to try it as an 
experiment.   My biggest concern is having a bunch of code sitting in a 
queue and not reviewed, nor committed --- or the review processes become 
too onerous and code not making it through because of what I would 
consider to be "ticky-tacky technicalities."     If the process brings 
more people to the project, then it can ameliorate the first concern 
entirely, but possibly escalate the second. 

But, Robert's penchant for experimentation is charming me into doing 
something different and actually trying it out. 

So, whose going to show me what to actually do?  There's no rush,  I 
won't get to being able to push the interpolate stuff out until next 
week at the earliest.
