Indeed, we should have another attempt.

I just ran the test suite a few times (to eliminate transient
failures), and whittled the failures down to:

cablesearch cite ctan debcontents[2] deblists deblogs debpts deli
finkpkg[1,2] foldoc genportage github[1] happypenguin imdb[3,4] jamendo
javasun musicbrainz[2] ntrs springer woffle yandex

woffle fails because I haven't got it installed, because it isn't in
debian anymore, so it may in fact work fine. At some point I'll
install wwwoffle and test it.

Debian does have polipo, which seems to be a replacement, I'll look
into getting it working with both.

I'll try and tackle the test failures in the upcoming days.

There were a couple of commits on master that weren't on

b6c705d really remove bashism from elvi/yandex
ff6adcd Correct an issue/bug on the new searchable/multiple bookmarks.

so I merged them into 2.2.9_release_candidate

To be honest I can't remember why we we are using
2.2.9_release_candidate instead of just committing to master,
but we might as well carry on for now.
