If these are directly greppable from the build logs, then the proper
place is probably in the code on debian.org infrastructure that
handles incoming logs from the buildds.

That said, sbuild runs a separate logger process to handle build logs,
and we could add additional logic in there to match user-configurable
patterns and mail them to a user-configurable address.  Note this
would require disabling by default, or default to the user running
sbuild, or else any random user building a package would end up
spamming the BTS.  This could then be enabled on the buildds.  If
we allow a list of regexes to be used, we can support different
compiler versions, languages, etc..
