Indeed. :-D

Yes, I had this exact 'Huh?' moment back in 2012. I remember spending
quite a long time searching 'TAP specification' documents, in order to
get an answer to this. It was so long ago (and I can't find the links
to those documents now), but I have a vague recollection that prove's
behaviour is correct in allowing '1..0 <skip message>', while throwing
a fit at '1..n <any message>' (for n > 0).

I would probably have simply split the test file into two, but ...

... this looks good to me. (tested on Linux and cygwin).
