Hi Beman,

I've turned off the report generation for noon today, and will try to
get improved reports out later today. Some comments below...

Sure, I can do that. I'll put the total number of failures after the
platform name, and then omit all of that information in the detailed
report below (including the reports sent to Boost developers).

Actually, this is one of those cases where it would be great to start
really using libs/platform_maintainers.txt. We can e-mail the
platform maintainer when there is a large number of failures on that
platform, so s/he can look into it.

I'll rephrase this in the context of the other changes.
