Perhaps we need a tool which collects skipped and runned tests, compare
these sets with sets from a previous run on the same buildbot and reports

Figuring out a way to collect and merge coverage data would likely be more
useful, since that could be applied to the standard library as well. Ned
Batchelder's coverage.py supports aggregating data from multiple runs.
