If you force patches through at the present rate

I'm open to suggestions.  The development team is producing
approximately 20 patches (including drafts) per week.  We could
always tell some programmers to bugger off, but that seems highly
counter-productive.  :)

Indeed.  Perhaps we could make a clearer distinction
between patches that must be reviewed, like those
which cause syntax changes, those which add new
features and those by relative newcomers, and those
that should simply be pushed without review, like
bug fixes by experienced developers, minor doc changes,
etc, with the aim of reducing further the number going to Reitveld and lengthening the queue. Another GOP topic?

Another idea would be to try forcing people to review patches.  I
don't see that going well, either.

No, sounds pretty impractical too.
