Sure, I really meant, "next to useless for me."

I use them to verify the health of the project before I make a release. In that way, the form
a contract between me and the rest of the developers. If the tests pass, the code is healthy.
If the tests fail, the code has issues that need to be addressed. When I am tempted to ignore
failures due to their nature, that is a bad thing. When I consider running them under Linux
instead, even though we officially support OS X, that is a bad thing.
