I totally agree. Having an API call for this would be killer. You could then
tie it into say your continuous integration system or whatever so it builds
as often as the tests are successful. If you don't have this you can always
just make a cron job or something to do the API call as often as you want.

Automatically by LP could lead to broken builds if people aren't paying
attention or forget, moreso than handling it yourself via an API.
