to not work for that reactor, but in any case, either the tests or  
the reactor should be fixed. Tests that have been failing for a long  
time indicates that nobody cares enough about that code to fix them.

Clearly the best resolution of this would be to have all the  
mentioned reactors fixed. Then, nobody would propose that they be
