I think the old compatibility suite had some functionality for mixing
JVM versions that has not been added to the compatibility tests in
suites.All yet. But the old compatibility tests have had a low
signal-to-noise ratio, and they were hard to debug, so I'm not sure it's
worth the trouble to resurrect them at this point.

They are supposed to run every day, as long as there has been a commit
since the previous test cycle. It looks like the tests have been running
after Oct 14, but the reports haven't been generated. I've pinged
Ingemar and asked if the compatibility test runs could be disabled and
the reporting scripts brought back to life.
