If it really does show up right in Gerrit as if it were integrated,
then that would be fine with me. I think the biggest problem we have
right now is that a lot of the CI systems are very inconsistent in
their reporting and we often don't realize when one of them *hasn't*
voted. If the new thing could fill out the chart based on everything
we expect to see a vote from, so that it's very clear that one is
missing, then that's a net win right there.

But at the end of the day, we need to make sure we're improving
visibility and not hiding all the noise they generate just because
it's annoying. As long as something like what was suggested here is
injected right into the gerrit API, then I'm in favor of something
like this.
