A better solution (awaiting sufficient round-tuits) would be to add an option 
to regrtest that's used by the buildslaves that uses particularly markup 
around success/fail indications. The buildmaster can pick those up, and keep 
track of existing pass/fails. Then it could send an email only when one 
changes. We might also add a daily or every couple of days reminder 
saying "The following tests are failing on the following platforms, and have 
been for X days now". 

Buildmaster code is on dinsdale, in (I think) ~buildbot. It's also in SVN.

This solution doesn't require changes to the buildslave code at all - only to 
the buildmaster and to regrtest.
