Travis solves this by distinguishing between "failed" and "errored"
states. "Failed" is the first kind of failure that you mention:
something goes wrong in my "script" section. "Errored" is the other
kind, where something goes wrong in my "install" section (when
setting up the dependencies, i.e., not my fault). I get an email from
travis when something fails, not when it errors. It would be nice if
Jenkins would do the same thing.
