A friendly ping on this?

The failure to apply this patch is blocking the planned increase
of code sharing between gnulib's `tests/' and automake's
`tests/defs', which in turn is blocking the possibility to define
and use proper subroutines for test skipping/failing -- which in
turn is blocking the improvement/addition of more detailed, clear
explanations for test skips.
