In seems like this has potential for continuous integration, on non-halting regressions.
In short, the idea is to create a test for exposing a bug, and then running the test on the previous
versions of the software (bisecting) on a range, finding the offending commit.

Needs a lot of discipline on keeping the commits small.

Is this already done and i'm missing out?

interesting idea indeed - but nothing we are doing. Don't know if we could nudge Hudson to it, using svn? At the end of the day we are quite happy to have "normal continous integration" working.

It's hard to do with svn i think (i did find some discussions about it on their mailing list), since svn is not distributed -> needs lot of network traffic to do something like this.

But mercurial...
