#3505: Allow plugin/theme reps to respond to reviews at any time

 Currently, we allow reviewers to edit their review indefinitely, but the
 topic it self is auto-closed like everything else on the forums.

 If a review is edited, the reps have no way of reacting to this if that
 cutoff date is hit.

 Opening up reviews to allow replies at any time for those with commit,
 contributor or support rep roles with a plugin or theme makes sense, and
 would of course also mean opening it up to the reviewer to respond to
 those replies.

 The drawback here is that by doing so, we are negating the effect of
 manually closing a review, which is currently done if a review goes off
 the rails.

 Is this trade off acceptable? If they go off the rails then the user(s)
 are generally flagged as well as is, this would mean flagging is the only
 reliable reaction in such a case.

 See also #3504 which is related, but doesn't cover the aspect of opening
 things up after the auto-cutoff.
