This is a "hip-shot" type of comment - well, it's five in the morning 
over here... - and I havn't checked out if it's quite possible at all:

I would like to run the tests, at least the mandatory ones, but for the 
ones known to fail - like the math-test on my old k6-2 machine - I'd 
like something like "run the testsuite but without the math-test".

If this is somehow possible there could be an entity like 
"--disable-math-test" or so witch could be emptied out if unwanted...

After all this was what come to my mind when I commented out the 
testsuits in my profile a while ago ...
