Apparently, new tests results were uploaded and now:
- we no longer see any results on release branch
- the trunk results are all green

I don't see how we could ever had them. The XSL scripts were fixed to accept
run_mpi test type just recently, with previous change in 2007-12-13.
mpi.jam uses RUN_MPI type since 2006-12-18. So, it seems like no MPI
results could appear in the matrix for all that time.

And which of alternatives should we go with? E.g. switch or merge?
