Would this need to be deployed to each buildslave, or would it live on
the server?

I think that ideally, one could click on a link, and see something like:

[[[
Failed tests:
authz_test-1
basic_test-17
merge_test-582
...

Complete logs:
authz_tests
basic_tests
copy_tests
...
]]]

Each of the lines (aside from the section headings) would be
clickable, linking to respective test log output. We could even
colorize the output in some way.

Does buildbot support anything other than plain text for the log file link?
