Now I lost you here.  Who is he?  The setting is this: if a
test simply crashes, the framework goes on and the failure
will be obvious.  If a test hangs, the user can kill it and
we have the same.  Or the timeout can kill it and maybe note
this in the log.  This all depends on the framework, but we
only have serious trouble if the user kills the framework
itself, which happened in the case of the ME tests.

An occasional 1, 2 or 3 at the end of your tag?  Why not?

But it can not possibly be displayed (a name is too wide and
you may have submitted several tests), while it seems useful
for quick visual identication, if you want to concentrate on
a single test run.  Or do you simply not want to do this? I do.

Possible, but it would destroy the consistency of the
links in the column.  May be worth it, though.

Oh yes, I have not got any more reports for a while, and do
not intend to distribute newer versions of my package.  We
had some discussion with Jakob on the format already, but
not finished yet.  Especially not with the master file...
