Sorry for screaming so late. I have a diff that does both of these, plus
the notifications in the 4th item below. I'll send it in a bit, though
it's still rough.

On second thought, first I'll split it into separate status and notify
diffs. They have less common code than I thought they would. Though
it's weird to have intermediate states where expected_output and
expected_status are inconsistent.
