No arguement there, if the *perl-framework* is broken your fixes are

NOOOO!  While we appreciate your efforts to have the *tests* run properly,
please do *NOT* mask legitimate failures in your efforts to have 'clean'
output from the framework.  As the tests grow, we discover that some of
our long standing expectations aren't met - and that both 1.3 and 2.0 may
exhibit issues.  Don't mask those issues - they need to be called out.

So do fix the *tests* - do not *fix* the tests :)
