It's the product of the probability of success for all the modules.
And I've added a note about that.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Yes, it'll be low, because lots of those failures will be from older
versions of perl, or weirdo platforms that you don't care about.
Failures also include pedantic errors like the tester not having a
library or application installed when a module requires it.

Fixing at least the first half of that is on my to-do list.
