Yes, I meant the latter. If we suddenly see a compiler fail on every
library, or a library fail on every compiler, then we probably have a
configuration issue. (But how do we implement "suddenly," since the tests
don't keep a history of past results? We only want to block blooper runs,
not compilers or libraries that legitimately fail everything.)
