Hmmm - making just one page of errors for each library and tester rather
than a page for each test would help me out. this would eliminate the
truncation of the error messages and diminish the number of potential
linked pages (in the serialization library) by a factor of about 1000.
that might help performance.

But once we start doing that, we'll end up re-architecting the whole
thing! Which is what I would very much like to see. But I wouldn't
want to impose such a task on anyone.
