Question: what should I do if a test failure does not render the library
unusable, but I don't want to mark the failure as "expected" because I
_never_ expect failures. ;-)
Basically, what I'm asking for is support for non-critical failures, still
show as yellow in the detail view, don't make the library box turn yellow in
the summary view. I think.
