Most all encompassing solution

Define expression like

where [RESULT] is one of SUCCESS|FAILURE etc..

allow reference in there of any of the running machines or the jobs
classad values via some $() like syntax.

Make the default be

"Your condor job $(Target.Executable) $(Target.Args) was killed by
signal $(Target.KillSignal)"

Or some such...perhaps with some $$(Target.ALL) uber macros for staing
all classad name value pairs in the job
