MailNotifier: mode to handle SVN failures

Description

Our buildbot runs on a troublesome network, where slaves often fail to connect to the SVN server. It would be useful to have a mode wherein MailNotifier? suppresses SVN related failures, while still reporting on build or test problems.

MailNotifier? is fairly late in the chain to be filtering such things. A better bet would be to write a subclass of the Source step that can verify connectivity to the SVN server, or retry the SVN requests, or something, so that the failures do not occur to begin with.
