I'm curious what the counter-arguments to this are.  Is it
review-fatigue from getting the release out, or is there an economy of
scale to building up a 100 patches before starting to review?  Would
reviewing these get some contributors moving again, thus boosting the
total work hours available for the 8.5 release?  Would it pull people
off of WIP?
