-1 --- that will break a lot of existing habits to no purpose, not to
mention creating complications for scripts used to test multiple branches.
We have intentionally maintained backwards compatibility in these testing
targets for a very long time, even though that's left us with
inconsistencies like installcheck defaulting to serial while check
defaults to parallel.  Adding a new capability is not an excuse for
breaking the historical test targets.
