Sounds good.

I think an earlier first step should be to reorganize layout tests so  
that the platform-independent ones are in a different directory than  
the dependent ones.

Either or both seems fine -- I don't feel strongly about this.

Bugs are a great way to track specific tasks to be done. But I think  
it's even better if there's a way that the layout tests source tree  
self-documents which tests are expected to have different results per  
platform and which are not.
