To an extent, although, probably not to the extent that it is usuable
everywhere else. Nor to the extent that we have to develop something
specific rather than using software that already exists.

As an editor, but not necessarily for everything else.

Both of the tools that have been mentioned (gitlab and buildbot) have
IRC interfaces, so that could be contacted this way. Another solution
would be to extend them to serve up an org file, with hyperlinks through
to logs, and so forth.

AFAICT, the current solution (hydra) doesn't offer an emacs front end.
