Since we generally get tests to pass, I'd rather not disable any of them, not 
even for new code.

The patch was ready before the feature freze, so I'd rather have you work with 
Tony on getting the tests working and submit the patch to the stable branch if 
the deadline is missed because of the tests not working in time.

(note, I'm not part of the release team, just suggesting this)
