This report lists as "regressions" numerous failures on compilers we
weren't testing before (e.g. sun-5.8), or on new tests. Like bogus
warnings from a compiler, this is actually more harmful than helpful.
It causes developers to ignore the reports and looks to everyone else
like we have many more problems than we do. How can we get it to
actually report regressions?
