Well, it is one thing to place git-annex under CI to make sure its
latest and greatest works together well with our latest and greatest
(and it may be something we want to see happen), but driving its
tests from our testsuite sounds like a tail wagging the dog, at
least to me.

I do not mind at all to place the simple reproduction recipe Joey
posted as a new test in our test suite, though.  That kind of test
that catches changes to externally visible behaviour surely belongs
to our test suite.
