you look at the current trunk tests for bronf1 you can see what I mean.

Uh oh - looks like I didn't look closely enough. The results
page shows test fail when in fact it wasn't run because of a failure
in a dependent test. So it seems that contrary to one's first impression
it works as advertised. I was sure I had observed a problem with this on
my own
test setup but I'll double check.
