My view is that reasons should be separately in the log file; there should 
be a fixed set of test names, each of which may be PASS, FAIL, UNRESOLVED 
etc. in a particular test run.  (I know the code reporting ICEs in test 
names doesn't conform to this; properly that should have separate "test 
for internal compiler error" test names rather than modifying the name of 
a failing test if it has an ICE.)
