I believe I suggested the aging fade-out, and it's implemented...on
the column headers (I'd envisioned fading the cells, but didn't
specify). At least we can see somewhat at a glance which results are
old. fading the rows could be useful, but the summary page
encompasses sometimes many tests only a few of which may have become
outdated. it _would_ certainly be an alert that something needs to be done.
