Right, make check has already this problem, that's the reason e.g.
Norbert's Mac tinderbox doesn't run checks AIUI.

My fear is that ATM if one of those Writer filter checks got broken,
tinderboxes go red, we spam committers, and that's annoying enough that
the problem gets fixed ASAP. For 'make check', this is less true. (I
imagine people who run 'make check' are the same ones who use dbgutil
and werror. :) )
