  +=head2 Skipping Numerous Tests
  +Just like you can tell C<Apache::Test> to run only specific tests, you
  +can tell it to run all but a few tests.
  +If all files in a directory I<t/foo> should be skipped, create:
  +  t/foo/all.t:
  +  ------------
  +  print "1..0\n";
  +Alternatively you can specify which tests should be skipped from a
  +single file I<t/SKIP>. This file includes a list of tests to be
  +skipped. You can include comments starting with C<#> and you can use
  +the C<*> wildcharacter for multiply files matching.
  +For example if in mod_perl 2.0 test suite we create the following file:
  +  t/SKIP:
  +  -------
  +  # skip all files in protocol
  +  protocol
  +  # skip basic cgi test
  +  modules/cgi.t
  +  # skip all filter/input_* files
  +  filter/input*.t
  +In our example the first pattern specifies the directory name
  +I<protocol>, since we want to skip all tests in it. But since the
  +skipping is done based on matching the skip patterns from t/SKIP
  +against a list of potential tests to be run, some other tests may be
  +skipped as well if they match the pattern. Therefore it's safer to use
  +a pattern like this:
  +  protocol/*.t
  +The second pattern skips a single test I<modules/cgi.t>. Note that you
  +shouldn't specify the leading I<t/>. The I<.t> extension is optional,
  +so you can tell:
  +  # skip basic cgi test
  +  modules/cgi
  +The last pattern tells C<Apache::Test> to skip all the tests starting
  +with I<filter/input>.
