Perhaps. If we were to require a green dashboard for all platforms before
release, and use "expected failures" when a compiler/platform cannot deal
with a certain testcase. Then a "diff" between the old and new expected
failures lists would tell what fails now that passed previously (and won't
likely be fixed).
