I agree, but this behavior was specifically required by Maciej when we
brought the bot online.  I'd be happy to change it if that's what
folks would prefer.  One possibility is to incorporate the status
bubbles directly into bugs.webkit.org directly instead of requiring
the extension.  I find the status bubbles easier to use than hunting
for the success / failure message when reviewing a patch.
