GitHub simplifies code review and leaving comments

The workflow here is that the proposed patch gets uploaded to a GitHub branch or fork; the code reviewer is made aware of the patch, and goes to the commit page on GitHub, and hovers over the line numbers and clicks the 'Add comment' button and leaves a comment; the reviewer informs the author, and the author updates his patch.

BTW, this screenshot is for a paper I am writing about the use of blogs and source code repositories in chem- and bioinformatics education.
