By "unit tests" do you mean phpunit or phpt? People who are used to pear
packages are likely to run the tests by something like:
pecl run-tests -r
so if we had the SKIPIF sections I'm suggesting, then they would see a
message, for example:
SKIP SCA ebaysoap test [tests/SCA/phpt/nnn.phpt] (reason: ebaysoap SCA
binding requires openssl extension)
I would find that more helpful (and maintainable) than a para in some
docs somewhere that I probably haven't read.
