The regression test don't currently output an easy to use XML... Beman has
it on his todo list. At which point we plan to replace the current Perl
script with a C++ cgi to generate the summary.

Seems nice. But I'm not sure running XSLT transforms on the fly in the
SourceForge web servers is such a hot idea ;-) I don't even know if it's
possible. Re, if they even have the needed packages loaded into the web
server machines.

The SourceForge web servers are all running Linux, so I don't ASP code would
help in this case.
