Do the APR people have any interest in getting output from this script
to a separate address?

I was thinking maybe the cvs list, to make it easy to correlate build
bustage with checkins. Tinderbox (from the Mozilla project) does a
*really* fancy job of this, but it's supposed to be not ready for
primetime. So, unless anybody knows of some software that would be
good for this, I'm just gonna hack together a little shell script.

I have a dedicated machine installed and firewalled, so I should get
to this this weekend. If anybody has any particular features they
want -- and in particular, any strong feelings about whether
``complain repeatedly until fixed'' or ``complain once when it breaks
and then be silent until it's okay again'' is the right behavior --
let me know.

I am hesitant to e-mail the entire build log when the build fails,
since this would be a very large message. Unfortunately, I'm on
(intermittently connected) ISDN, so putting it on a web server here
isn't too useful either. Sigh. In another project for which I'm
doing this, mailing the last 100 lines of the build usually gives
enough info.
