Bug Description

Low priority, but JFTR, currently if a user submits a review for an app that hasn't yet been reviewed, an API call is made to Launchpad during the request to verify that the binary exists.

This may lead to bad user-experiences (ie. LP api timeout, or other failure, or just a very long request), when we could instead save the review immediately but flag it in a state of NeedsPackageVerification or similar, and have a cron doing the verification in the background.
