comment Alternative to “Passing/Broken build” indicator?
NUnit has the concept of an ignored test. That might be an alternative: they don't get run so they don't fail, but they're still reported as being ignored.

comment What non-theoretical, practical programming language has no reserved keywords?
Those aren't keywords, they're pseudovariables. "Pseudo" because true, false and nil are well-known values supplied by the environment and self, super and thisContext are variables you can't set but whose values change as a result of execution.
