I'd say it's the job of the patch *author* to describe all this in the commit 
message, not the job of the reviewer to go dig out the missing information by 

If the commit message argued the change convincingly, and contained everything 
the author learned while developing the patch, other people would have a 
chance of approving, or Thiago would be able to do it while waiting for the 
next compile run.

Maybe the patch author would even learn something he didn't knew he didn't 
know. At least that's how *I* feel more often than not.
