Second option is an acceptable workaround for me, but having the third one would be even better. I 
definitely want to avoid the first one - computing power of my machine is limited.

What if we could set the default state of upload patch to "planned changes"? This way patches 
would end up in the review queue only when someone explicitly sets them to "Request Review". 
Wouldn't that solve the problem?
