Okay, I can live with that.  As long as there is a *gdb* bug id on it;
that is the important part to me.

For the mechanics, we can set 'class=suspended', or maybe we can add a
new class to gnats.

Right now, I do this for native i686-pc-linux-gnu for every release
candidate.  So it helps a lot when all KFAIL's and XFAIL's point to
a place where we can write analysis notes.

I don't know.  You could do screen scraping with URL's like the ones
that I post in the sunday project reports.
