I don't think there's much substitute for knowing what tests we have

In the particular case at hand, I wonder if we could generate new test
certificates every time (or at least have an option to do that) rather
than relying on premade ones.  But I don't think it's realistic to imagine
that check-world will ever automatedly invoke every possible test.
