I'd actually like to see it email a mailing list, in addition to the individuals it guesses are to blame. That could be either webkit-dev or a new list. Maybe some won't want the spam but I bet a lot of people would like to find out about every build break. If it's at all possible, it would be great to email all of the patch author, the reviewer and the committer (if different from the patch author).

I also think it would be neat if we could have a bot that alerts about build breaks on IRC in #webkit.

And finally, it might be good to have extra notice if a build remains broken for some time (every 24 hours maybe?)
