I asked Alexandre, and he thought that this one might be a fair cop; not 
just an infrastructure failure, but a real failure that should have been 

But you are right that the infrastructure instability makes it very 
difficult to do any real work against the failing test list.  My hope is 
that it's close enough now that we can, by trying to fix tests, more 
clearly identify the remaining issues and resolve them.

And I also felt remiss in failing to shame *anyone* <grin>.
