interesting point. maybe that's what's holding me back personally  
(only finished one review up until now, buildout of the second one  
running as i'm writing this). i was under the impression that a review  
consisted of 'serious QA', ie. hunting down the individual revisions  
that make up the plip and looking at the diffs; doing manual  
clicktests on FF, Safari, Win IE 6/7, including migrations then  
discussing any bugs that come up with the author and see their fixes  
through until resolution (with possibly bouncing unacceptable fixes  
back to the author once or twice).

that stuff can amount to some serious time, i can tell you. but OTOH  
i've read things like, "it usually only takes 20-30 minutes" for a  
review, what gives?

maybe i'm just taking this *too* seriously and thereby (ironically)  
actually holding the whole process *back*.

anyway, i'd be interested to hear some feedback on this, in the  
meantime i'll be doing another review ;-)
