I think the way we're displaying these results has a lot to do with the
problem. A display like http://bitten.edgewall.org/build/trunk would
show us continuously and immediately if some platform's tests were not
up-to-date. It's totally unworkable that someone has to notice that one
or more platforms haven't posted results in a while.
