It's somewhat related. Now you can use 'explicit name-of-test-suite ; ' and no
test will be run unless you name testsuite explicitly.

I'm not quite sure about V1's behaviour where test-suites were explicit by
default. That differs from every other target.

Also, IIRC, V1 has a special 'test' target that is not declared explicitly,
and which results in building all tests. Again, I'm not sure it's good idea
to implicitly define taregts.

So, what do you think is the right behaviour to have in V2?
