Actually, it would be cool to get "Tested: no" and "Tested: compile"
tags in the commit mesages. Sometimes it is clear from the context
that patch was not tested (treewide update of time to 64bit), but
sometime it is not.

This is especially problem for -stable, as it seems that lately
patches are backported from new version without any testing.
