I'd also love to see pixel tests again, otherwhise we have to rely  
that ie. Dirk & me run
SVG pixel tests on a regular base, to find these regressions. Just  
checking the -expected.txt
files is not sufficient for SVG.

Though enabling pixel tests for all layout tests will be a lot of  
work, as Darin already pointed out.
How about we'd start only with svg/ pixel tests? Getting SVG pixel  
tests working across the ports
would be a huge leap forward.
