All of this comes down to one simple thing... "Communication Overhead"
And the way I see it AJ would soon go from hacking and committing patches to 
explaining why every dropped patch was dropped. So the question at the
end of the day
comes down to this, do we want AJ working on hacking/committing or
sending reasons why patches dont get applied?
There are only 24 hours in a day and I believe the current system is
the most productive.

1) send a patch
2) wait five days for a commit
3) re-submit after five days has passed
4) if the patch still isn't committed after two days ask why.

This gives everyone who is interested a week to review/test the patch
in question.
