Which is to say, a proper solution might take an order of magnitude
longer than you suggest.  But something could be done very very

  a) an interface could come first (a "help keep the wiki clean" link
that took you alternately to 1. the last diff for a randompage and 2.
the diff for the last non-whitelisted edit from recentchanges).  just
adding a "randomlastdiff" link next to "randompage" would be a great
  b) if I had a link I could follow to "do my 5 minutes a day" to
track least-reviewed changes, I would do it.  probably every day.
probably on days when I felt I didn't have enough time to even respond
to my talk page comments.
