I don't fully disagree with this (although I'd have stories on nefarious typos 
even for what was supposed to be a "trivial fix"). But it becomes a question 
of trade-off, IOW "how hurtful to the project mandatory reviews?" vs "how 
hurtful to the project a central component being very regularly broken?".

I'd argue we're loosing more with the current state of PIM than we'd loose 
with mandatory reviews.
