Maybe the idea just needs to be approached from a different angle like
I did with /bin/sh/tests (
)? I know that with DTrace at least, it uses dtest.pl, which
implements its own test "discovery" mechanism, which should be easy to
hook into atf and produce testcases for dynamically. Some additional
logic might be required to work around testcases that fail today on
FreeBSD or cause the system to livelock/panic (e.g.
https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=192906 ), but
writing in simple hooks for this shouldn't be hard.

Perhaps. I'm lazier nowadays and prefer not chasing after the perfect
solution if I can help it (especially because it tends to bite me in
the rear later).
