Perfect for me, but you should know that it will fail also when strange 
things occur, for example, out of memory, of disk space, slave 
disconnected, network error, etc.

If you are willing to treat those (the most common infra failures) as 
devel failures, then no problem on my side, but I don't want you to 
start ignoring test errors because it's most probably an infra error 
(don't get me wrong, it's totally normal to start ignoring an alarm 
that is not a real problem, as infra members we will try to minimize 
the infra issues, but it's not yet as stable as we'd like it to be).
