The Results Tracker would be a feasible solution to the problem of getting
test results back from each instance, which happens to be an excellent
use case for the service. However, I was hoping for a solution that would
only depend on juju in order to lower the barrier to entry instead of
also realying on an external service. Perhaps this point is moot and
relying on the Results Tracker may actually be the right solution.
