I would dearly love to improve this situation. I could imagine (easier) 
a CLI tool to help you

  (1) submit requests,

  (2) view them [the swift software we use to store/retrieve results has 
  an API],

or (harder, better) an extension to the web frontend so that PPA results 
are displayed like distro ones.

Just mentioning this in case anyone gets excited about helping with the 
tooling. I'd love to put this on my list, but someone else picking it up 
would make it happen sooner. :)
