If I understand correctly, failures explicitly marked will be reported
in green cells. I'm not sure I like this solution. I would rather the
color to be gray. The gray color means "The library author marked it as
unusable on particular platform/toolset". It is currently used only for
mark-unusable tests; but I think this description equally applies to a
mark-failure test, doesn't it? Or another color could be chosen. But
having a test suddenly green when a library author becomes aware of the
issue is a bit excessive imho.
