I think that's a good model for webpages-backed-by-git, but less so
for integration/software testing.

I could probably rig something up like that locally, but I'd have to
make it detect a crash and email me. The advantage of jenkins is it
will do that automatically, on infrastructure I don't have to worry
about maintaining[0], as well as making the crash details public.
There's a chance it might even detect a break in stem.


[0] A problem I've had a lot is that my 'email me stuff' scripts will
stop emailing... and I never find out they're failing!
