We might take the short route and add something to the mash runs for the
time being, longer term getting a plugin that can mark a build as fail,
when a test fails would be good.

This is sort of where I started from initially, having the work just get
done and triggered from a jenkins job, Lets see how it works for the
that model, we can always just go to this anytime. When we looked at
JJB, it seemed limited in what plugins and what things it might be able
to do, but its worth a revisit if it helps solve these issues.
