[Cdash] Proposal: Splitting Failing Test from Passing tests

The standard Dashboard has a column for Failing Test and
another column for Passing Tests.

However, when clicking on the entries in these two columns the
user is sent to the same page, that contains both the failing
and passing tests. The failing tests are conveniently listed
at the top.

Most of the time, when a user click on the failing tests entry,
she/he is only interested in looking at the failing test.
However the time to generate the page is penalized for
the (typically larger) number of passing tests.

I would like to suggest to split both lists, so that when
the user clicks on the "failing tests" entry in the top
leve dashboard, the returning page displays only the failing
tests, and not all of them.

Does anybody see a drawback in doing this  ?
