[Cdash] [vtk-developers] CDash query for all failing tests

Don't forget, there are also these pages already available:
This one [ http://open.cdash.org/testOverview.php?project=VTK ] shows a summary of the names of the tests that are failing in a given group. After you get to the page, you have to choose "Nightly Expected" to see those test failures. This is the closest thing there is to "a summary page that shows what's wrong with a given group", but there are no details on that page, and you're still 2 clicks away from seeing details.
This one [ http://open.cdash.org/queryTests.php?project=VTK&date=&limit=10 ] allows you to choose filter parameters, but (unfortunately) there is no easy way on that page to limit the output to a given build group. And again, you're at least 1 click away from seeing any details.
It would be better to modify CDash to provide the desired page than it would to introduce scraping scripts. If the scraping scripts run "too much" or automatically, rather than strictly on demand by developers when they need it, it will just put a mostly unnecessary burden on the CDash server. This page should only be produced *on demand*, not on an automatic schedule.

The second script does essentially the same thing that Dave Cole did years ago
I assume that was in the dart days as it didn't work for me right off
the bat, so I decided to roll my own.
