I am as well. It is great to see valid test results being published.

To everyone, the results are easy to publish so please do so. If you are on a
host we do not have results for or you just want to help please send them in.

I agree we need this.

I took a look at this just before pushing the last set of changes and stepped
back. There is a `os.uname` for Unix but not Windows and if you look in
`sb/windows.py` you will see a number of things are needed to figure out
Windows. I need to add a per host type support to get a name and then I think it
is after the build status in the subject so it is easy to see which results you
are looking at.
