Neither money nor reviewers are really needed. The XArchiv system

http://arxiv.org/

works really well in physics and astronomy and has a sparsely used networking

It works well if heavily used because it is open to any submission (including corrections
of previous submissionns) and because many papers are eventually published in print journals.
