In specific situations we end up with multiple lines of blue "failures", some day ago there were like 5 lines of these. Hypothetically these retries may continue indefinitely, till someone pings buildduty.

That spams the tbpl view, so maybe we should evaluate a way to coalesce them.

My first suggestion is to show just one failure, and the number of retries near it, like B(12). The drawback is that this may be less scarying than 2 or 3 lines of failures and people may not ping buildduty to investigate the issue.

Thoughts?
The bug isn't that they are hard to ignore, it's that we ignore them. If we're going to count retries, I'd much rather see us count to three, and then stop considering them as starred and make them visible in onlyunstarred=1 too.
