Could rollout of patches be automated in some fashion, so that a previously-green tree becoming red could trigger a rollout of the last checkin?

On the other hand, I've noticed that the varying speed of the various build bots makes it difficult to assess which patch might have triggered a break.  It's not uncommon for some machines to be several patches behind others, and long test runs further exacerbate the problem.
