Sounds great! It would be even better if it could automatically
pull patches off the roundup tracker, try to apply them, and
post a message into roundup whether the patch applied and tested
successfully. To prevent spamming, it may be necessary to
explicitly release patches to buildbot (i.e. classify attachments
as non-patch, released, or verified), but that could be done
