The idea was that we would use --strict on pqm and before releasing,
so that a greater level of temporary breakage was allowed while people
are developing a feature.  I'm not sure this is the best policy - if
someone has time or the ability to write a test but not to fix the bug
then merging the test to mainline is still worthwhile.

I think we can still use --strict to make sure that when we do an
'important' test (into pqm, or before releasing) we test the most we
can, and don't skip any tests that would pass if more libraries were
