... in general the system doesn't regard blocked tests as blockers.
It expects the depended-upon action to be a blocker in itself.

That would be possible and I have some code to do this for bisections
but it's more complicated here.

In practice these builds fail rarely enough that it's not a problem.
If they do fail because the upstream sites are down they are failing
for other people too and I would think that the best way to deal with
that is to reduce the number of sites we depend on.
