Should someone set the review flag to '?' to get Nicolas' patch reviewed? Who?

rsync3.txt in the source tree has this to say about atimes:

"Desirable features:
 - Propagate atimes and do not modify them.  This is very ugly on
   Unix.  It might be better to try to add O_NOATIME to kernels, and
   call that."

So apparently someone with commit privileges (Martin Pool to be precise)
already has decided that such a feature would be desirable (back in 2001). Does
this add weight to this request and patch?
