Upload code changes and view webrevs

1. Web based, just upload your diff (in a single file or in a TEXTAREA 
box) and the hg changeset URL it's based on. (Please don't ask me to 
upload a whole bunch of files).
2. All current webrev diff styles available for view
3. Nice URL to any single line within the webrev

It might be useful to add a comment system below each webrev, but please 
make sure comments are sent by email also. And that means a user 
management system, which might be complicated.
