I don't think there's anything really wrong with this, but if we do it
we'd have to make sure that chmod failures are ignored.  Suppose
srcdir is read-only.

We can't use this in general.  Automake's tests are scripts, but that
doesn't have to be true.  They could be C programs.

Maybe it would be better for us to hack cvs so that it rejects commits
where the .test file is not executable.
