This looks what I do now for certain specific tests. OK. But seems
cumbersome to add this to all the tests. Is there a convenient way to
specify that the whole test suite is to be skipped for compilers which
don't support some specific feature? It seems to me that this is
essential if libraries are going to differ as to what level of C++
compliance they offer.

At one time I remember skipping the whole compiler by fiddling with
something on the test web page. I forgot how to do this. In any case,
it would require knowing ahead of time which compilers are to be skipped.
