[developers] Skipping non-parsed items in fftb

Dear all,

We are doing some treebanking here at UW with fftb with grammars that have
very low coverage over their associated test corpora. The current behavior
of fftb with these profiles is to include all items for treebanking, but
give a 404 for each one with no parse forest stored. This necessitates
clicking the back button and tracking which one is next (since
nothing changes color). In that light, two questions:

(1) Is there some option we can pass fftb so that it just doesn't present
items with no parses?
(2) Failing that, is it fairly straightforward with pydelphin, [incr
tsdb()] or something else to export a version of the profiles that only
includes items which the grammar successfully parsed?
