Yeah, I noticed the discussion awhile back and then noticed that some
people had started using it, so wasn't sure if I'd missed some memo
about "phasing it in" or something.

Personally, I like the ease/brevity of "ACK", and as for having a
Reviewed-by as part of the commit history, I have two comments: 1) I
don't care much about having *my* reviews documented in the history, but
it's sometimes useful to know who the reviewer was when it's someone
else (of course others will say the same for patches that *I* review,
so... :-)

So I'm conflicted. It seems like a good idea but takes more time. Too
bad there's not some commit hook that could search the email archives
for the message with the ACK for a patch and add a Reviewed-by to the
commit automatically...
