I actually quite like the fact that gump at least sanity checks the 
validity of the M1/M2 dependency graph,
because if it doesnt, well, that can get you into trouble in many 
different ways. so while doing any
in-build dependency fetching of classpaths is futile, it does at least 
check that that part of your code works to the level of "all the 
declared dependencies are retrievable".

yes. I was also thinking of having a proper switch to say "dont run 
functional tests here"; inferring that from build.sysclasspath is 
probably bad form.
