I was thinking that each patch would generate its own karam, so
each of those uploads that failed the tests would be -2 karma (or
whatever the figure is), with only the final upload giving a +1.

It's true that multiple rounds of "patch, reviewer comment, patch,
reviewer comment" could potentially generate a karma windfall...
but hey, since it's not like people can buy anything with karma,
and as long as there's multiple rounds of not-automatic-failing
patches, I'm fine with that.

All my years of observing lilypond development suggests that
saying "we need xyz" is a recipe for nothing happening.

But hey, I'm not totally wedded to the idea of tracking karma, so
meh.  As long as I'm not personally playing nursemaid for people
who don't run the basic tests, I don't mind if the patch-tester(s)
want to keep on warning about flawed patches.
