    doesn't cost much
  * scripts/graphics_driver: Merged Alberto Milone's work on a
    hybrid_graphics_test into graphics_driver as his stuff and my stuff were
    similar enough to be in the same script, plus this allows the advantage of
    using Bryce Harrington's xorglog library down the road.

    it in line with approved technology guidelines
  * jobs/ Fixed audio jobs to use --file option of audio_settings
    instead of piping to STDOUT.
  * Prettify the Step icons that appear next to each test step in the test run
    screen (LP: #1036085)
  * Remove the 'Don't show this message on startup' checkbox from the
    introduction screen, since it isn't used (LP: #1036218)
  * Continue to run the progress bar when the test dependencies are being
    resolved so that it doesn't look like the UI hung (LP: #1036573)
