the integrated libraries in live are in a state that compile, load and
work fine together (which means that we don't know about issues that
are the result of integration headaches). no more, no less. dwim.hu
runs from the live repos.

as of failing tests: they are part of the bug database. i try to put
with-expected-failures everywhere where i see expected failures,
although it's not always easy due to macrology and i don't run all our
tests regularly (e.g. perec).

so, we try not to have failing tests, but we are not too nervous if
there are some. and we definitely prefer failing tests to unexposed
