What I originally asked for is indeed something quite different (see 
below).  I understand that Christian offered this "spamming from 
Jenkins" as a mitigation for the problems I reported (lack of feedback 
on failed Jenkins/Gerrit builds), and I answered that that mitigation 
does not work.

Sounds good to me.
