Further information: the (invited, as I remember) attendees were given the code for review a few days before the walk-through.
At one shop we had code walk-throughs. They specifically not termed "code-walkons,"
Several programmers --- no managers --- would schedule a conference to review and comment on code.
These walk-throughs were a good idea --- the coder wasn't attacked by one person; others were (probably) more tactful than yours truly.

1. it doesn't use litigaton as part of its profit picture;
2. is is about as fast as the selected database when specified with similar options;
3. it doesn't lose data as much as the selected database by a wide margin.
4. it is tied to the academic community.
Just a few thoughts.
