This is a "hip-shot" type of comment - well, it's five in the morning
over here... - and I havn't checked out if it's quite possible at all:
I would like to run the tests, at least the mandatory ones, but for the
ones known to fail - like the math-test on my old k6-2 machine - I'd
like something like "run the testsuite but without the math-test".
If this is somehow possible there could be an entity like
"--disable-math-test" or so witch could be emptied out if unwanted...
After all this was what come to my mind when I commented out the
testsuits in my profile a while ago ...
