    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.

Thanks,

Carl
