Anirban writes many tests, see in the /mcs/btests directory. We have a
makefile there that runs 3 lists of tests, sources that should not
compile, sources that should compile but should not run correctly, and
sources that should compile and run flawlessly.

The source files' names try to allude to what they are testing. But you
may have to read everyone to really what part of the syntax they are
testing. What we may need is to make like in /mcs/tests, and have the
'do not compile' list to be organized around the error number every
source is expected to get from the compiler. I think that is a good
'scavenger' job to begin.

Some of them really aren't well-tested
