What about TestSkipped? I thought that raising
test_support.TestSkipped should behave like this: you're saying that
you're actually NOT executing the tests, but you say that they are

But a few days ago I needed to comment out a test that previously was
raising this, because it made a buildbot to go red.

How this should behave?
