I'm not sure what you're trying to say here.  If a test is failing
because of one line we can change the code, change the failing line, or
even ignore the entire test.  That's in approximate order of preference
IMO, but no matter which we do aren't we back to getting the "whole
boat" to float?  If we decide that the status-reporting lines in tier.t
aren't important enough to change the result of the test as a whole,
then I think it's perfectly valid to change those lines from "TEST X" to
just "X" or delete them entirely.  I'm just saying that we need to
express that decision in code so that our automated test processes will
get what we deem to be the correct answer, instead of letting it get the
"wrong" answer and require a manual override.
