For most test environments I make the whole build fail as soon as a test
fails; this is implemented in the ant-based mauve test as well.
The reason for this is simple; if a test fails its a regression bug; you can't
commit changes while you have a regression bug.
This might not seem fully logical for mauve; but do expect people to become
very annoyed when tests fail. Its a mental thing; 100% correct is a world of
difference from 99.5% correct.
