Agreed; we should try to avoid giving that impression.

I believe that we should (temporarily) remove
from git master.
Note that the file itself will still be in the git history, and we
can "unearth" it using webgit (or your local git) whenever we
want.  So no need to panic about making a copy right now before it
is removed.

I believe that once we have cleared up the relevant fundamental
architecture brokenness, we should reinstate that test (or at
least, something like it).  But I think that we should treat that
"reinstatement" like a new patch, i.e. include it with whatever
programming fix patch.

I think this is exactly what Keith was proposing, but I hope that
this explanation is more clear for the email archives.
