Well, the sheriff-bot knows how to roll out any patches. :)  Adam
knows this code as well.

The code to switch new/old on any builder is simply changing this
return statement:
Right now all configurations use old-run-webkit-tests since
useNewRunWebKitTests() always returns false.

Those are all good bugs.  Dirk, Adam, Chris and I are all continuing
to improve new-run-webkit-tests.  Others should feel encouraged to
hack on it as well.
