I have written a new macro, which should do the job. It is called
`skip-if' and works like `should' and companions. You pass a form as
argument, and when it returns non-nil the test is skipped.

Test summary is showing skipped tests.

Could you, please, check the appended patch, whether it fits your needs?

Best regards, Michael.
