And for those who don't know, you can have the test suite run only
subsets of tests using keywords. For example,
  make test TEST_Q='-a -p POP3'
will run all the POP-3 tests only. Naturally, the <keywords> section
has to be set up properly, but that's already the case for the 8xx series

I just don't see the need. There are already lots of protocols mixed up in
other sections, and the keyword-based test selection means that test numbers
just aren't that useful for selecting tests.
