PagerDuty Incident Webhooks

This fires a webhook of incident data for each triggered incident PagerDuty in your account. Ideally, you'd point this at another tiny app that processes the events and does your bidding with them - ships them to campfire, APN, a tiny sinatra app that pipes incidents to say...go nuts.

Re-triggered incidents will cause an additional webhook to be sent for the same incident. Make sure your endpoint is okay with this.

I hate to poll like this, but whatever. It works.
