I think we at least need to identify (to the best of our ability) the tests
that fail and include them in release notes.  If they're easy to fix, we
should fix them.  Maybe also open a bug report for each failure.

I'm okay though with some tests failing in 2.6 with this environment variable
set.  We needn't go back and fix them in 2.6 (since we're in security-fix only
mode), but I'll bet you'll get almost the same set for 2.7 and there we
*should* fix them, even if it happens after the release.

I'm not sure, but as long as the buildbots are green, I'm happy. :)
