Therefore, I'll reword the question:

Do you call `ctest -L export` regularely?

Could you imagine calling `ctest -L export -LE "texissues|attic"` instead?

  -1 more to type
  +1 filters not only 58 but 80 "wontfix" inverted tests
  +4 makes the test system less complicated.

Do you call `ctest -L inverted` regularely?

Could you imagine calling `ctest -L inverted -LE "texissues|attic"` instead?

However, the "usual full run" (without -L) does test them.
How often is -L used without also -R to select specific tests via regexp?
