I solved it with a custom buildstep that adds the HTML log in 

However, it seems hard/impossible to add a HTML logfile. the 
addHTMLLog() function takes the content directly, not a filename.
What I did was to record the html as text during the step, but in 
createSummary I pass it's contents to addHTMLLog and remove the original 

I'll have to figure out a way to do this better. Ideally, I should just 
be able to do addLog('name', file, html=true) and get an incremental 
HTML file too.
