Fine by me, I don't worry about this one at all.

I haven't tested the patch, but if you ask me, I don't like "hiding" this
in a SKIP.  This is another case where a "local" XFAIL would be really
nice.  How impossible is it to introduce some kind of mechanism that a
test can trigger when it has detected some condition that makes a future
FAIL expected?

Let me know if you still want me to test your patch.
