fate needs more inteligence :)

"all h264 tests are failing"
"5/100 h264 tests are failing"
"all svq3 tests are failing"
"all pal8 tests are failing"

that is each test should have a list of tags
* when a single test is failing FATE should print it
* when more tests are failing and they all have a common tag
  FATE should be printing that tag with 2 numbers showing how many
  of all tests have that TAG and how many are failing of that
