Just out of curiosity, with the huge jump in regressions (from ~20 -> ~3000)
a little while ago, was that a necessary increase on the way to fixing the
libraries (i.e. a failure on one compiler belying the presence of a serious
flaw in a library), or was it something else: such as changing the way the
tests are done; authors of some libraries deciding they can add/debug more
features to their own before others fix theirs; etc.?

I hope that's a reasonable question. I realise I can get the sources via
cvs, but like I said, I'm curious.
