I would like to see them applied, but I'm not worried about exactly
when.  I just don't want it lost.  If I do apply it to the current tree,
hopefully it will not be too hard to adapt into your new design.  (But I
also don't want to make the merge more difficult than strictly required)

While some of those tests were known to fail for a long time (the
'expect space collapse' test), can you look into what made the other
tests start failing?  We should not just disable tests because we find
they start to fail.
