How to access the state of dependent builds

I have a question about accessing the state of the builds upon which a final configuration is dependent upon. I've got a config that's currently just a command line build. I have found out how to access the build number (and other properties) of dependencies like so: %dep.<btId>.build.number, for example.

However, what I'm missing is how to access the state of the build. Seems like there's no exposed property for the actual build that completed? Is the only way to access this through the REST API? Reason I ask is that I'm creating a build configuration that writes success/fail of certain key builds to our Graphite server in order to track pass/fail rate of our builds over time. I figured I'd create a build config, make it dependent on the builds I care about, then aggregate up pass/fail and write it off the Graphite.
