I don't see how that would help, since the commiter's responsibility
is to review the code and make sure it doesn't break the build. And
having the patch itself is already a pointer there is an interest in
certain feature/fix/whatever. Also, at least once during the past
year, you were nicely asked to take a look at one of the changes which
you refused to do with a convenient excuse. So I don't think your
suggestions should be taken for good here.
