I think a good example is your patch today (and pretending you're not a
maintainer). There was a single typo in a commit message. I wanted it
fixing, but I don't want to have to have to review that whole thing again
(in reviewboard terms "fix it and ship it"). I would have given a +2, but
when you re-push to gerrit I would have to +2 again before you can merge.

It's be a perfect example of where a self +2 would be fine.
