If the question is "why do we have this status quo?" the answer is "because it
is result of some dozen discussions between developers (mostly on the ESC).".

If you assume the status quo to be my personal best preference, I can assure you
that is not the case. If you would dig through the six years of debate on ESC,
you will even find that I was supporting tests to only be run on "make check"
(to be consistent with autotools). That was not going to be due to this thing
called "compromise".

Im just warning that this is a bikeshedding topic that we already had an
expensive compromise on -- and reopening this will at best require updating
lots of docs and will at worst open yet another longwinded discussion --
for little gain.
