Absolutely!  Don't get me wrong.  Having a full set of test suites and
keeping them 'green' is very important.  There's too much information to
understand without the reassurance of constantly passing tests.
Regressions and failures need to be understood and addressed.

Today's question is: is this revision a stable point in the code that we
can publish as a basis for ongoing development?  I think it looks good
enough to declare a milestone.  I'm looking for others' opinion in areas
of code I'm less familiar with.
