That's a good idea. Now how to communicate that... Should we jump on the
next thread about core-reviewer nomination and derail it ? Should we
(gasp) start a new thread to discuss that precise idea ?

In all cases, we may need some "openstack-dev sanity police" that jumps
on inadequate threads to keep them at an acceptable level. I did it for
some time for support questions, Anita did some as well for review
beggars... Volunteers welcome :)
