Actually, it's the other way around. I wouldn't mind changing the
breakage output *if* we can make sure that all relevant information is
there. I do believe that committers should keep an eye on the breakage

IMO checking how your changes behave on platforms you can't test
yourself is a matter of public hygiene.
