[theme-reviewers] how to make reviewing faster

"Why not to have a rule - if you want to add your theme, first you must
review one (or more)."

1. Because theme authors are already contributing work for the community.
They're *already* donating their time, work and effort for free, they
should not have to do anything else. This would be like paying someone $10
so that you have the privilege of buying them a $5 hamburger, just doesn't
make sense.

2. Besides the fact that the community would simply miss out on the
potential themes from authors who said "Screw that.", of the ones that did
review, they would likely be one-off, half-assed reviews, just enough to
get by. I've seen similar methodologies attempted in other review forums,
"You must review a website before your website can be reviewed." and it's
just a waste of time quality wise.

Current wait time for review: 2 months
Wait time for your theme to go live once it's been approved: About a week
