Once we have a better error parsing function (Tassilo worked on it,
but I didn't try his branch lately) I will definitely want to have
regression tests in our "tests/" directory, but you mean to gather
compilation logs just to have something to work on, right?  In this
case I agree it's useless to collect them in our repository.
