That sounds to me like the best of both worlds: we get the output that
I want, while making it as easy as possible to stick the KFAILs back
in the test suite if the same bug crops up again.

Honestly, there isn't much of a point to them.  They serve as a
reminder to get rid of KFAILs once you've fixed a bug (because KPASSes
will show up in the output of 'runtest' or 'make check'), and they
might be useful if you're interested in tracking down exactly under
what conditions a bug manifests itself.  But I don't feel strongly
about either of those issues; if nobody likes KPASS but me, then I
have no objection to using plain old PASS instead.
