No, I don't personally intend that, quite simply because they're not 
security reviews and there is nothing to be lost by having the post 
appear before things are "fixed". Save for this very first review, for 
Printer-Friendly Pages, our queue is filled with people who /want/ these 
reviews, and have knowingly agreed to have the results made /public/. 
There's no clock to beat, nor embarrassment you didn't bring upon 
yourself ;)

The intent of the reviews is to increase code /quality/, which /only 
occasionally directly/ equates to an end-user benefit. Sure, you can fix 
bugs and speed up a function, and perhaps make this work a little more 
closely to core but, to the end-user, it's not going to make a huge 
amount of difference - they may notice some of the more UI-related 
things, or that something is a little faster, but they're not going to 
know if you committed faster good code or faster crappy code.
