Platform-specific TODO tests
Message ID:
I am composing a bug report for a non-critical failure on win32. I am 
not able to fix the bug myself, but I might save someone some time by 
contributing a patch to the test suite illustrating the expected 
behavior. Since the bug seems to be win32-specific, the new tests would 
be expected to pass on most platforms (they might be skipped on VMS). 
Since the bug is not critical the tests would be best written as TODO on 
win32. The problem is that I can't see how to express such a 
platform-specific TODO test using Test::More.

So, is there interest for this kind of contribution (bug report + patch 
with 'TODO' tests), and if yes, what would be the recommended way to 
code such platform-specific TODO tests ?
