Yes, and I'll probably do that. But in my experience, this has a very high probability of burying the problem, i.e. the incentive for actually fixing the problem is reduced dramatically.   It's better to do test-breaking things on separate branches when possible.  IMO expected failures are for when a feature is being designed and still incomplete, not when it was already working.

Isn't there a way to mark a test as expected to fail?
