FWIW, Gecko does fuzzy-comparison for those tests, that is, we tolerate
up to a limited number of different pixels, and record the number in our
test manifest for each test needed.

The only thing we do to modify the test when importing, as far as I
know, is to insert @font-face of Ahem font for those  tests which
declare "ahem" in their meta data.
