I'm happy to hear that you found them useful! In the future, I want to  
make the table sortable (e.g. group by verdict or only show fails,  
etc.), and allow the ability to remove implementations from table, so  
it's easier to compare (e.g., A vs B). if you have any further  
suggestions to make imp reports more usable, please let me know.
