| Just a quick thought having had a look at this, often a single
| test-method will test several things, say formatting lots of strings. If
| we Ignore this test, we could introduce bugs in the other tests. Hmm,

| it in that method from running anyway. Comments?

A great thing would be to separate those out into their own tests, leaving
only the Asserts that do not fail.   Then we'd basically have set of tests
with only one assert that fails and is tied to a bugzilla number.

Probably a script that reports the ignored-but-fixed tests is good enough
for now.  We could add that to the test-run target I guess, so it would stop
if there were any ignored tests where the bug is supposedly fixed.
