+1.  I'm really not at all happy with the prospect that every time
somebody adds a use of "note" to some new TAP test, we're going to
get a complaint later that that test no longer works on jacana.
We need to either decide that non-ancient Test::More is a hard
requirement for all the tests, or fix things with a centralized
solution.  A dummy (or not so dummy?) implementation would serve
for the latter.
