    REVU currently allows comments from non-Ubuntu uploaders
(allthough it does require a LP account), it just doesn't allow
advocations.  If this isn't the correct behaviour, it's not that hard
to change, but I'm not sure that changes to REVU need to affect
changes to sponsoring (unless we decide to do all sponsoring through
REVU (or similar), for which there are good arguments (some changes
can't be expressed as a diff (e.g. native vs. non-native), sponsorship
requests are often not really bugs, so clog the bugtracker, etc.).
