Yes. Probably the only way this will work better is if we get the
testsuite to 0 failures, everywhere, conditionalizing as necessary to
get rid of expected failures. Then regressions will be more visible.
I doubt that will happen unless we freeze the tree for a while and get
everybody to fix bugs, or disable tests, instead of doing new stuff
(at least, that was the case for gcc).
