Yes, the system just gives the test script a boolean describing if 
network tests should be run. The script can then do whatever it wants 
with the boolean. Skip all tests, skip no tests, skip just some tests... 
its a drop-in replacement for the current 'debug' boolean used based on 
BIOPERLDEBUG.
