[lug] crond and batching up emails

I have a script that logs stuff. It's in a cron job. I *want* the email with
the output of the script, but I only want *one* email. For someone reason
the gentoo server I'm working with seems to think that every time
standard-output is flushed, that's cause for another email. So I get
basically an email for every single line of output from my script.

How do I get: one script execution, one email?

Stop the madness!
