    Our views differ then.

    It is unreasonable to assume, that someone who is listed via
    Tested-By: in a random patch is able to review another patch to the same
    file. More likely will he be annoyed, because he see's a patch, dig's
    in and then thinks: "wtf? why were i cc'ed on this. I don't know this
    code. I don't have time for this!"

    Thats just broken.
