Hello Jelmer,

on my laptop I'm facing errors on some tests using tap2subunit.

perl /usr/local/src/samba4/pidl/tests/ndr_string.pl | 
tap2subunit 2>&1 | ../selftest/filter-subunit --fail-on-empty 

will gives you this for skipped tests:

test: pidl.util.test 47
skip: pidl.util.test 47 [
doesn't seem to work yet

test: pidl.util.test 48
skip: pidl.util.test 48 [
doesn't seem to work yet


But for this command (the one used if tap2subunit is shipped with your 
perl /usr/local/src/samba4/pidl/tests/ndr_string.pl |  tap2subunit 2>&1 
| ../selftest/filter-subunit --fail-on-empty --prefix="pidl.ndr_string."

test: pidl.util.test 47
error: pidl.util.test 47 [
_StringException: test missing from TAP output

test: pidl.util.test 48
error: pidl.util.test 48 [
_StringException: test missing from TAP output


It seems that the problems comes from the way the builtin subunit handle 
skip tests versus the version we have in samba4 (as ours do a .upper() 
before comparing to "SKIP").

I made a patch to detect if the builtin lib is able to handle correctly 
the skipped tests for tap2subunit.
Let me know as it might not be the good python way to do it.
