Stupid me, I meant to vote for a rolled our own Test.pm with ok and skip

The other option is to go back to what we had which was to defined a 
 method test() in every .t file.  But that is sort of dumb to copy and
paste that method into every t file.  We should at a minimum make one file
that has the necessary method(s) - why not mimic Test.pm in this case with
ok() and skip()...
