I'd rather have separate emails.  Now it's very convenient to open each
email individually and hit the end key to see the actual failure.  If
multiple failures were aggregated in a single email, I'd have to page
through all of it to find the relevant bits interspersed with the boring
bits.

I seem to remember Steve Alexander writing a separate Python script to
do that.
