[Buildbot-devel] bug? notification mail when interrupting build (leading to a deeper issue)

when i press the 'stop builder' button on a running build's web page,
the following failure mail does not include the name and the reason i
entered, but looks like a normal failure notification with the
blamelist, thus causing confusion among the developers about who is to
blame for the build "failure".
the stopper's name and reason is correctly mentioned in the log file for
the step during which the build was interrupted though.
it seems that the build object only has one reason field (accessible via
getReason() ) and that is the build reason for manually starting. for
manually stopping, there seem to be no data structires.
shouldn't a builder (build) have an additional status besides FAILURE,
SUCCESS and WARNINGS : a STOPPED status?
and additional fields for the stopper's name and reason input?
so that if a build is stopped manually, the mail could contain
additional info about this?
or are there any other suggestions for solving above mentioned problem?
