Most subversion teams also set up the repository to send email
everytime somebody commits. The email contains unified diffs of the
changes, so peers review the changes after they're already committed.
Discussion happens on email, and after receiving feedback, the original
committer goes and makes more followup changes.

This assumes, of course, that everybody trusts one another. "Commit
first, get feedback second." If your company is really paranoid, then
people can commit to private branches. People will still be able to
review the changes in email, and after feedback is done, the changes
can be merged from the branch to the main 'trunk'.
