I believe the concern here is concentrating on how owning devs + others 
conduct incremental patch reviews in conformance with the current LLVM/svn 
based practice. IMHO any automated approach, such as your suggestion, would
have to incorporate this concern, while simultaneously not forcing core devs to
temporarily stop their current LLVM work in favor of learning a new review process,
and possibly having to retool 3rd party dev tools.

If a commit fails to pass the test suite then it would be rejected and never committed to the main repository, preventing it from causing issues with other developers. If a commit passes then the buildbots could automagically push the changes into the main repository.
