Could you elaborate? What failure scenario are you worried about?
As a novice in running the test suite, before test-output-distance was part of
the test suite, we could run tests and get no output. So we thought that
everything was OK, but it wasn't. Since adding test-output-distance, we always
get the result of at least one regression test failure.
I thought it was a good addition.
