It does mean that developers have to commit changes in a single
transaction, or run the risk of a partial change breaking much code, and
causing a flood of regression test emails, even though the rest of the
change is committed a moment later. Probably be good if there was a built
in delay of a few minutes.
That's also a problem with a cron based scheme.
