Thanks for the report, but I doubt that this will be implemented
in tracker.debian.org anytime soon. I would suggest that the buildd should
add headers so that people with very specific requirements can filter out
some mails with procmail or similar.

I'm putting debian-wb-team@lists.debian.org in copy to hear their thoughts
about this. Do you think it's possible to add headers like:

    X-Debian: buildd.debian.org
    X-Debian-Architecture: powerpc
    X-Debian-Suite: sid
    X-Debian-State: failed

Maybe the behaviour of the mail notification could also be rate-limited to
one per day per version per arch...
