The alternatives have shown a tendency to lock up development for
everyone.  Not everything goes through the full cycle, but it's not rare
that even "trivial" things get valid comments and corrections.

No "constant awareness" is required.  Patches move from Patch-new to
Patch-review to Patch-countdown to Patch-push without the patch
originator being required to bother about it.
