Walls Healing Themselves

The great futuremill of Futuristic delivers this article about self healing concrete.
I consider this one particularly impressive, because the solution has the elegance and simplicity of something that not only could work, but may even be practical.
The only difference to normal concretes seems to lie in the the addition of some exotic ingredients (bacteria pellets and calcium lactate). Adoption is easy, since all the processes stay the same.
