If one of the triggered builds fail (or if I want to look at something in that build), I have to manually guess which build in the waterfall corresponds to the trigger. I cant find anything in the "big" build that links to the actual triggered "little" builds.. right?

It looks like Triggerable has the buildset id, but how can I use that to retrieve the BuildStatus objects from that? I suppose all I really need are (builder name, build id) tuples to build a URL, but getting the BuildStatus would be more general, for example if I wanted to later add stdio logs to the email.

You could pass information in the trigger as a property.
I add a "triggered_by" property for such.
