Amen!!!  I have meaning to do this, but I have not been able to find
the time.

One could do like Bazaar developers do, they have mailing list robot
that snatches patches on their dev list and commits them.

Our robot could build them (on a linux system) and run the resulting
winetest.exe on a virtual machined windows.

Then the patch could be blackflagged _before_ it was commited by Alexandre.
