While that's true (and would require having an up-to-date lintian on the
buildd which does not emit false warnings for packages built in the
testing/stable/oldstable queues), some people are working to get
autosigning happen. This might drop review except for special cases.
Of course we could put lintian into that set, though. And that might
actually be a good compromise.
