BTW, I figured out why the variable is named 'TEST_Q'. That's because
tests/ has a bunch of different targets, one of them is called
quiet-test and it then subsequently uses TEST_Q for options. Q for quiet.

'make test' in the root Makefile invokes (somewhat unexpectedly) the
quiet-test target in the tests/Makefile

Well yes, maybe. But I don't think there's a problem there yet so let's do
this now and see how we'll handle it down the line if we run into issues with
having too many test targets.
