How about this?

Don't change regression.cpp itself.

Write a shell script:

* diff the old and new html files. That will pinpoint the changes.
* Jiggle the diff output file a bit, so that
* running patch with the jiggled file results in a new html file with the
blink attribute (or whatever) on for any changed pass/fail results.
* look at it with a browser.

You can't beat that - blinking notice of changes right before your eyes:-)

Maybe some Unix script guru can figure out how to do the "Jiggle" part
without writing any C++ code.
