No, IIUC, Joshua was suggesting that core team members spend one cycle
doing reviews only, with no coding, and then reverse for the next cycle. 
That is just far too coarse/crude. Core team members need to be free to
balance their time between reviews and coding work on an ongoing basis,
just as any other member of the community can.
