No. If you want to run the tests of a given file, you don't want to
discriminate them. Otherwise, you could run expensive tests in that file
only when you call "make check-expensive". Not acceptable, IMO.

Discriminating the tests is appropriate when running "make check". This
shall give you an overview of Emacs' health in a short time.

What would you recommend else? Introduce another syntax for selectors?

Best regards, Michael.
