Mostly because base on 1.32.0 experience we had some reservations
about its usefulness and thus it was not cost-effective to update it
with the rest of the reports. Now it probably is very not up-to-date.

I think it can be easily done. Here are some ideas:

* the test data can be generated using

* I would make sure that issues.xsl generates correct results first.

* Then I would use a real regression logs and commenting out parts of
  XSLT code to find out what the bottlenecks are.

Don't hesitate to ask more questions - we very much appreciate you
looking into this.
