Hmm. Adding new tests to 2.7 is a questionable activity in the first

2.7 should absolutely be able to support Tru64 (even though it currently
may not - that would be a bug). Any potential contributor to fix Tru64 support
should find it "easy" to add fixes.

So being cautious and following existing code sounds like a good idea.
The world wouldn't end if the test broke on Tru64, though.
