I haven't waded entirely into this patch yet, but I just wanted to make
a comment about something:

Actually, some jerk already implemented xfail for you, in the form of
marking a test with the additional header comment:


To be fair, as far as forgetting goes, we do have two existing tests
that are marked TODO; the issues they cover apparently have been
addressed as they currently succeed.

  simple.pl (Wstat: 0 Tests: 71412 Failed: 0)
    TODO passed:   71328, 71411

They are:
