XFAIL is expected fail; I needed a tag for *un*expected PASS. IMO, XPASS
would imply expected pass.
Since some Mauve users might be reliant on the current PASS tag, I ruled
out changing that to XPASS (which would have freed up PASS to mean
unexpected pass). Doing this would possibly have messed up existing
frameworks, something I wanted to avoid.
