Explicitly marking which tests are expected to fail has the property 
that one doesn't have to compare anything with anything.  Checking the 
tests would then provide immediate, unmistakable feedback.

I wrote the attached utility based on SET-DIFFENCE to parse and report 
on a simple s-expr based database of test results, and I have also 
attached the tests results I have collected over the last day.  These 
results now contradict my earlier email, showing:

   R12506: 34 failures

   R12506: 33 failures
   0.18.0: 34 failures

which shows we actually improved our coverage in this development cycle 
(Ville fixed MAKE-BROADCAST-STREAM.8 in r12397).

My testing shows that the WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 has been present 
since 0.18.0.  Perhaps this is an OSX specific thing?  I'll test that 
out next.

"A screaming comes across the sky.  It has happened before, but there
is nothing to compare to it now."
