That hardly ever makes sense; if you want to do post-commit testing (i.e. 
don't revert the changes if the tests fail) simply setup your server to do 
nightly test runs.
With your suggestion you have to assume that the person who pushed the patch 
will read the email and unrecord/amend the local patch and not just push it 
again.  That just does not give you a very good workflow IMO.
