That was what I was trying to explain and failing. That is what I am proposing. :)

Yeah, I wouldn't recommend blindly trusting it either... it could short circuit all the other tests though, like:
do the linting tests before any other tests. if it fails, end review of the whole PS and submit back a cleanup patch. Then start over with the testing. So test wise, it wouldn't be too expensive. But it could easily double the number of reviews like you point out, if that is an issue.
