Do all these task have to apply to make the test valid/useful for you?
On one of my test systems - I contribute to Guix - there is no chance of
a (system-specific, unofficial) torbrowser build so far (but I/we keep
looking into this).
So long story short, I can run tests on some amd64_x86 based
gnu-systems, but on one of them I need to exclude torbrowser.
