As yet another alternative, we could put the names of the builders on
which builds are expected to fail (or the system names of these systems)
into the test cases, and then report "expected failures"; regrtest would
give a "success" status if all failures are expected.

The consequence would be that these systems would appear "green" on
the buildbot page, and you'd have to look into the log file to find
out which of the expected failures actually happened. This all could
work without changes to buildbot at all.
