It *IS* a bad idea. Consider how big the failure report can be. Why not
        1) have the report automatically uploaded on web
        2) have the summary of summaries be sent to -current

The summary of summaries would roughly look like this:

        Subject: -current build report

        Success: world, generic
        Fail:   lint

        For details, see http://blah.foo.bar/FreeBSD-build/date

It conveys the information most needed, and can hardly hurt anybody's
