For me, personally, RB's mails are even worse. They are unreadable in 
pine, which I am currently using while figuring out how to transfer my 
mail reading to thunderbird. And I get way too many copies of one mail, 
too.

(Same problem with this thread, or rather mailing list. Why the heck do I 
need to get two copies of every reply to a mail of mine... One is 
_enough_. And yes, I know about the whole reply-to-mangling-is-dangerous 
lunacy.)

Reviewboard isn't limited to kde-core-devel. And it doesn't answer my main 
complaint: reviewboard, by its design, is made to whine about whitespace, 
extra white at the end of lines and other one-line complaints. It gives 
the reviewer a happy feeling of a job well-done, and the submitter a cold 
shower. It's the kind of interaction RB encourages. And no, I don't 
currently know of a better tool, but that doesn't mean the problems aren't 
there.
