[hobbit] fallback alert service

Well, that's not my problem. I indeed use the email2sms gateway from my 
mobile provider, and that's also exactly my problem. I'm monitoring the 
MX servers of this gateway and they, unfortunately, go down too often. 
That's why it would be nice if there could be some dependency system on 
the alerts, so in case these servers are down it will use another 
address / script. I guess this could be scripted completely (external 
from Hobbit), but why not use Hobbit's ability to determine which 
gateway servers are/aren't available for alerting?
