I suggest that we could automate regression testing and at least
ensure that things get 'no worse' than the previous release by
simply doing image compares much like we now do with the SVG tests.

A single initial visual inspection followed by image comparisons in
future releases will narrow portions needing manual intervention to
areas of change, instead of the whole suite.
