I missed the broken() aspect initially. The problem is broken() calls 
are not meant to be revisited. So we'd either need a /* FIXME */ comment 
next to it, or an use an unreliable() macro, or better some sort of 

It seems the first two options would make the test failure disappear 
entirely so I'd prefer the third one which could issue some sort of 
message that would not be counted as a failure.

But I'm not sure any of this is simpler or better than what I proposed.
