Agreed, I opted to fix the producer because a failing test
compares an image with many references, but is produced
only once, so with many failures in the test-suite this
extra work is not repeated many times. 

OTOH to speed up the execution of the test suite probably it could be
possible to save with the reference also its md5sum, so that for
the exact comparison one computes the md5sum of the output and compares
it against many references with only one image loop.
