Comment (by Krejzi):

 Running a testsuite doesn't really say a thing about package being broken
 or not.

 a) All tests could pass but you could still hit a code path where
 app/library would segfault (for me all gcc tests passed but compiler still
 segfaulted on rare occassions, glibc tests passed but still some runtime
 errors - see glibc reverted change).

 b) No test could pass, but app/library could still work flawlessly (like
 this one and many countless others).

 As for the broken design, do you want to say that entire Linux OpenGL
 stack is broken by design?
