Yes, I completely agree except the part "in between the other review
traffic". My point was exactly that I want ALL the bits belonging to a
bug report in ONE central place and not split over mailing lists for
some sort of bugs, different bug tracking systems for another sort of
bugs and webrevs in different locations for yet another bugs (at least
in an ideal world this would be nice:).
