For the console test, yes.  I just did not care, because I
was promised a better run.

We could put up a little cgi which asks for a tag and makes
sure it is unique.  Or simply append a number if the
submission is done by email.  I do not expect too many
concurrent submissions anyway...

I see your point, but would like to make sure it is easy to
pinpoint a given submission.  Names are useful for that.

But I have a real problem here: which results to put in the
main summary if there are many reports for a version?  The
one submitted first?  The one with the most/least successes?
Or maybe a mixture?  Now it is the one with no tag, which is
practically the first submission.

Yes, he does.  But except for one result submitted by Jakob,
all the results are from my .bat-driven zip file.
