Is it possible to determine if the test class is running from the 
bootclasspath? This would then allow the suite() method to determine if 
the class should run or not. Seems like the unit package-protected class 
tests should only run if:
   using classes || loaded from boot classpath

And potentially some functional tests should not run in the boot 
classpath, e.g. those that would test what happens if a security 
permission is not granted, e.g. create a database in a folder with no 
write permission. I'm assuming here that classes in the boot class path 
have all permissions, is that correct?
