I would like the:

        project names
        client names

to be human readable and mean something. For example a project called:

        Xnee from CVS HEAD

actually gives hint about what is built. And a client name such as:

        Debian Lenny ppc

gives at least some hints on what type of computer it is.

The names are thus META information where the "project1" would be
the.... well, container/directory of the project info.

DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN ... I have forgotten about multiple build hosts.

Below is a draft sketch (tree -d)

`-- 2011-04-01
    `-- hosts
        |-- host1
        |   `-- projects
        |       |-- project1
        |       |   `-- clients
        |       |       |-- client1
        |       |       |-- client2
        |       |       |-- client3
        |       |       `-- client4
        |       `-- project2
        |           `-- clients
        |               |-- client1
        |               |-- client2
        |               |-- client3
        |               `-- client4
        `-- host2
            `-- projects
                |-- project1
                |   `-- clients
                |       |-- client1
                |       |-- client2
                |       |-- client3
                |       `-- client4
                `-- project2
                    `-- clients
                        |-- client1
                        |-- client2
                        |-- client3
                        `-- client4

I think a note here is important:

All the build logs (txt files) should be up there on the web server as
well as the yadab reports. The log files (txt) contain the real/raw
information about the builds where as yadab presents them in a more
human friendly way.

Given that, we can always find the information afterwards.

But I think that it would be cool to (later on be able to search for
things like:
        all builds on x86_64 machines
so yes, put them in db (imho).
