The solution in other test suites is to mark it as an expected failure.  Then, 
if it fails the user gets a 1 Expected Failure in the output and ignores it, 
but if it works for a developer they get 1 Unexpected Pass and have a look to 
see what it was.  We could do this quite easily with an xfail() version of the 
pass() function.

It would also be really helpful if we could automatically report the line 
number for test failures.  Unfortunately, this isn't possible while the pass() 
function is a function.  Are there any objections if I turn it into a macro?
