Without seeing the code, it's hard to criticize what you've done :)

>From what you've said, though, and from what work I've done on the
topic, your solution is probably not general enough (yet!) to be
accepted into the codebase, for a few reasons.  First, it stores the
information redundantly, both in buildbot's pickles and in MySQL;
second, none of the status plugins read back from this data.

I'm not necessarily encouraging you to try to build a full solution.
I tried, and it just got really, really ugly.
