Actually, I haven't come across many test failures where more

One practical problem with sending test directory contents by default
is that they can be pretty large.  When multiple failures occur, say,
all Libtool-related tests fail due to a Libtool installation bug, we're
speaking of several MB packed.  I don't really want this sent to a
public mailing list read by dozens of people.

Yes, and as a point of fact, my message was rejected by the mailing list and only made it to Stefano due to being listed in the Cc:.
