Your shell doesn't complete to the directory so-long-tests/ when you
type TAB?  (Bash does so for me.)

I wonder whether the Makefile could be made to do-the-right-thing if
"make lisp/foo-tests/" is used?  It would make sense to me if running
that command caused all the tests in that directory to run.

That would then resolve this (in)convenience issue for *any* library,
which would seem like the ideal solution to this problem.

I don't really know my way around Makefiles, but perhaps someone who
does will be able to comment?
