I think we are used to that because of the way pg_regress works. When you have a better test infrastructure that tests actual functionality rather than output formatting, this shouldn't be the case (nearly as much). If someone wanted to bite the bullet and do the work, I think we could move to a Perl/TAP-based test suite (not pgTAP, but Perl and some fairly standard Test::* modules) and reduce that useless reformatting work and test more interesting things.
