More information about *how* the installation failed would be useful for 
package authors to see at a glance what's wrong.  Right now, it's too easy 
to dismiss it as a peculiarity of your installation.  Being able to click 
through and see the log/tracebacks would probably make it more likely that 
an author spots the problem(s).
