I've made the markup for the testfacet test cases which accounts for 2
of the 7 failures. The rest of the failures look like acc compiler
issues to me. The remaining failures basically make using any of the
more recent i/o features unavailable. I could enable the old i/o code,
which is more forgiving to compilers, but honestly I'm ready to ditch
that code in 1.35 and mark any compiler that can't deal with the new i/o
unusable. Seems like the best course is probably to just mark up the
rest of the failures and hope someone at hp looks at the remaining
compiler issues. Thoughts?
