Keith, somehow i had overlooked this part of your email:

I was thinking about it, too (see "regtests about very small
differencies" thread on devel).  My conclusion is that using bigger
staff (or font) size should be a good solution: it makes the changes
more visible and immediately focuses reader's attention.  See commit

Oh, and there's one more thing about regtests that came to my mind: we
should perhaps have some sort of "special" category for regtests
requiring manual attention (example: issue 2656 concerns only
Windows).  Of course these tests would be ran seldom (only when a new
dev release happens perhaps?).
