Done now for kdelibs and kdebase. I'll do others as I have need. (Of 
course, anyone else is welcome to make the needed change as well, just 
'svn propset reviewboard:url' on the top of 
the module.)

Sure, though really there is nothing to it ;-). Where would be a good 
place to put it? Do we have a 'using Review Board' page already?

That's a great idea, but outside my area of expertise. I suppose it 
would be safe enough to compare the committing user to the RB user 
using, say, a new field in accounts (since 'svn user == RB user' is not 
necessarily true), thus allowing that if you can commit as JohnDoe, you 
can close a review request owned by JohnDoe.
