I think it would be useful to test this.  If people think it may be too
noisy, how about the address@hidden list?  Or a new list
address@hidden  Although maybe we can start on this list to see
how it works.

I can think of several things to improve notification quality: 1) make
sure that only one e-mail is sent if builds stop working -- only ever
send another e-mail if one build has succeeded since the last failure.
2) delay sending e-mail a few hours to see if the problem persists.
Sometimes you check in something that is clearly broken and you fix it
minutes later yourself, and getting a notification for that seems
useless.  Do you have a pointer to how these e-mails looks like?
