[Dune-devel] parallel tests in dune-common

Hey all,

d) would be so easy to implement: just return 0 instead of 77 in the
preprocessor else statement and be done. I personally don't deem it
important to know whether a test passed or whether it passed trivially,
because it was skipped.

The return-77-issue seems like a very good example of an autotoolism to me
and we shouldn't copy the old bahviour IMO.
