Well, I have to admit that at present is
unusable for me. I basically have to (try to) ignore all columns but
those that are "mostly green", as only those may contain "real" failures.

I think having a way to clearly differentiate failed tests from failed
(library) builds is a very important usability requirement. Even better
if by some simple criteria failed builds could be excluded from this
test result matrix. (It might still be useful to see the build logs for
those failed library builds, but definitely not as part of the test
results matrix.)
