That's a good point.  It definitely shouldn't cause the testsuite run
to fail.  If a testcase doesn't compile because the library
implementation is wrong, we'll, that should be recorded as a testcase
failure, but everything else should continue as usual.  We will need
to fix this.

If a particular build failure is cause problems right now, you can
always exclude test cases with a !java.* KEYS value.
