[theme-reviewers] Payment Option for Theme Reviews

​Just had a nice chat with Jen on Skype and here are some suggestions:

With the help of few volunteers, we need to go back and look at reviews
from the past year to identify the errors that we catch most often.

Once we got this information in we could then incorporate into Theme Check
(or similar) and *automate*.

We will be looking into smaller and basic errors, nothing to complex, or
issues that require special handling.


#1 priority themes should be reviewed in right away, not tomorrow or day
after, how about if we do the same for #2?

For #3 and #4 priorities to be reviewed within 48hrs?

This will clear-out the backlog and the process will be much faster.

Admins would still carry out their duties and reviewers as well.
