There were a few things I needed to tweak because the testing system
has changed a little since issues_page.xsl was maintained, but it's
been pretty simple to hack.

After some poking around, I found this little resource leech:
- use="concat( @library, '@', @test-name )"/>
It was probably just some experimental code dropped in at one point,
but yanking this out turned a 70-second xsltproc run into a 6-second
run. The full issues.html generation takes 5-10 minutes now, instead of

And I appreciate the help!
I've committed some changes to the XSLT and a little tweak to
boost_wide_reports.py. The issues page should build much faster now and
I've worked out most (not all!) of the kinks. If all goes well on your
end, could you re-enable issue page generation? Then I'll get down to
writing my spam-o-matic :)
