AFAIK Tbox script can not determine how urgent any given failure is.

And I certainly would not want it to call me for every failure I might
have caused, only as a last resort if IRC or email goes unanswered for a
certain period of time. This could of course be automated.

SMS reliability is a joke in my experience in the US.

All in all I think trying to have Tbox call people seems like too
fragile and too much work, although technically interesting challenge.

I would expect the sheriff to call only if the failure requires
immediate action and can not get a response from the committer on IRC or
email in a reasonable time.
