Peer reviewing of libraries is a good idea, and I'd like to see us doing
more of that for the libraries in general.

I think I'm proposing that if there's a review process, that it be
adopted consistently rather than just for the haskell-libs project.
Would you (Peter, or anyone else) like to put together a proposal for
how this might work?  Something that can be included in the library
document would be ideal.
