Sharp eyes! I did remove that from the log message/ChangeLog before
pushing the commit. At first I had written the support as a wrapper
script, but as it turned out, it was actually easier (and more generic)
without. I don't immediately know of any other "test-prefixers" we could
use/try. Are there any that would be beneficial to run make check tests
