It constantly polls the a buildbot server (every minute) (I use 
http://buildserver:8010/one_box_per_builder as cmd-line url) and checks 
it the returned html contains "fail" or not. (A grey icon means a 
connect failure such as server down or bad URL)

It shows the green icon when all builds are working, and when one fails, 
it should detect that within a minute and shift to red, along with an 
alert for the user.

So, it doesn't report on each build, but rather general status changes.

Bug reports welcome though. (I've tested it only briefly, but it does 
distinguish between good and bad builds on our server.)
