Yeah, some minimal hook just informing any interested party about "ok, 
Linus pushed to the main tree" (and in fact, perhaps generalized so that 
you can show that you are interested in some particular branch of _any_ 
tree that people can just add to their trees) certainly doesn't sound like 
a bad idea.

That way we can get rid of "polling by cron", without having to have the 
tree owners themselves care about who is interested in exactly what..
