I guess that could be an option.

We have hghave for this kind of stuff. For example test-convert-mtn.t is 
skipped completely if we don't like the mtn version, and 
test-clone-failure.t, test-git-import.t and test-profile.t use other 
tricks for skipping tests partially.

I guess it could make sense to introduce some kind of smart conditional 
sections in .t tests, but that would make it less shell-like and I don't 
know how a good syntax could look like ...
