Yup, they already are AFAICT.  I will activate the 2.4 doc builds to
send failures to python-checkins unless someone has a better idea. 
These should be very rare.  The destination is controlled by
FAILURE_MAILTO in Misc/build.sh.

Agreed, I don't have a strong opinion either.  There should definitely
only be one place to look though.  That should make things easier. 
What do others think?
