 Replying to [comment:37 DrewAPicture]:
 > @coffee2code can correct me if I'm wrong, but I get the impression he's
 alluding to the fact that a plugin review might not be finished in a
 single session (a la post locking), thus needing a way to mark it as "In
 Progress by X reviewer".

 Yep, what @DrewAPicture said is what I was thinking.

 Unlike when actively editing a post (for which a post lock is
 appropriate), a plugin review happens outside of wp-admin. Once a reviewer
 has obtained the code (whether it was uploaded or available via a link)
 they only really need to return to the post to progress the status to the
 next state. In the meantime, the review is being performed elsewhere and
 may not occur in a single session.

 As well, a reviewer may wish to preemptively claim a few plugins without
 actually sitting down to do the review(s) right that second. Or their
 machine or browser may crash. Or they're about to board a flight and would
 like to review a handful of plugins without having an internet connection.
 Or we may want to eventually allow assigning reviewers (such as cases
 requiring deeper security review or to deal with particularly complex
 code). All of which are not well handled (if at all) by post locking.
