Thanks, I didn't know that.  For reasons I just stated elsewhere in
this thread, I don't _completely_ agree with the specification where
it says:

    "Should a todo test point begin succeeding, the harness should
    report it as a bonus.  This indicates that whatever you were
    supposed to do has been done and you should promote this to a
    normal test point."

However those semantics are well-defined enough to warrant keeping the
"TODO" as you suggest.
