I happened to look at Coro. The fail is because of Steffen's (intermediate)
XS changes. The pass would be because the branch being smoked is either
based on Steffen's final XS version, or from before Steffen's changes.

Which is unfortunate. The test really needs to be between a branch, and the
point on blead where the test diverged. Does Steffen's smoker script
instead use "current blead" as its base point?
