This is the reason the builds are made each X hours.

That would be easily configured, but our intention was each module
mantainer asking for that. It would be not really polite to start to
send mails to the committers from the buildbot if they didn't ask
that (and probably you can see this as SPAM).

Something like the current working RSS feed ;) There are a RSS feed
for each project, and it only adds a feed for any build failure.
