I think the problem is specifically in a case like this one, where
people who are able to verify patches are not overflowing with free
time.  We cannot run the risk of destabilizing patches building up
because nobody had the time to check things that were already checked

So your explanation here makes me only more sure that we shouldn't
change what we're doing in this regard, precisely *because* of the
lack of extra time on the part of patch-checkers.
