I've removed the meaningless percentages of tests that have

I'll just repeat what I left on Andy's blog here in case anybody
agrees with me.
I don't like the change myself. I'm bright enough to figure out that
anything less than 100% pass is bad when developing.
When using other peoples test suites seeing, for example, 99% ok
tells me something very different from seeing 3% ok. For me the
difference between "nearly there apart form this bit of functionality
that I don't care about" and "completely f**ked" is useful. Yes I can
figure it out from the test/pass numbers - but the percentage gives
me a handy overview. Math is hard! :-)
Not something I feel /that/ strongly about - but I don't see the
utility of the change myself (beyond code simplification in T::H).
(probably just me :-)
