      That is correct, but PTS handles that appropriately. If you try to compare a test result from say Phoronix Test Suite 1.2.2 and 1.4.0 and there was a major change to a test in between there, it will automatically recognize that and shouldn't compare the results but would make two separate graphs showing one underneath the other.
