Comment (by saste):

 This was discussed before, and we realized that it would make the whole
 merging business impractical, considering that each review may take
 several days. So I'm for letting Michael do his merging work with no
 review, and then have some occasional flames about how things were merged.

 Also there are some areas where the merges are not that simple because the
 two codebases diverged too much, in that case it is necessary the work of
 a dedicated maintainer to port the relevant changes.

 Since this is a policy issue, should be discussed on the ML.
