Don't forget, there are valid reasons why hackage will sometimes fail to
build a package: missing C libraries, wrong operating system, etc.

Also, it would be nice if the build bot separates the building test from
the haddock generation: I've seen quite a few packages where it builds
successfully but then _haddock_ fails for one reason or another, thus
breaking the package.
