this has basicly been implemented already.

linus and andrew accept pretty much unconditionally from people who have consistantly provided good work in the past, others need to funnel their work through the trusted 'lieutenants' who are supposed to be doing the checking.

however everyone gets lazy at times and this generates posts like andrew's every once in a while.

Andrew is sufficiently respected that he probably should just bounce back patches with a "Bzzzt... get it right, I'm not debugging this" for problematic patches. Of course, the fact that he wasted time trying to compile it to begin with still slows him down.
