No further objection, so I've proceeded with the merge, and pushed.

    Merge branch 'testsuite-work' into master

    At last!

    Keeping the `master' and `testsuite-work' separated was becoming
    quite artificial, since there is no way we are going to release
    a 1.12 version of Automake that doesn't include the support for
    the TAP test protocol and for user-defined test drivers -- which
    are all implemented into the testsuite-work branch.

    Moreover, keeping those two branches separated was causing more
    maintenance and double-checking work than were warranted, was
    making the automake git repository even more contorted, and, on
    the top of all that, was actually *reducing coverage* by making
    all the important changes in testsuite-work less visible (less
    on-field testing by developers that routinely use bleeding edge
    versions, less automated testing by services like Hydra/NixOS,
    et cetera).
