Correct Rowland,

A regression in Samba means a behaviour (that is a bug) which is worse
in the new release compared with the old one.  

While undesirable, maintaining our old version of waf into a new
version is not a regression.  

The inverse is the case, a new version of waf is considered a feature,
and may address existing bugs that we have lived with for some time.
