Bug#788659: autopkgtest: Provide option to not implicitly run undeclared tests

Hello Dominic,

Right, that happens all the time with perl/ruby, as Nico and Antonio
pointed out. They (should) have a different Testsuite: header in that

To be honest I'm confused now. So "Testsuite: autopkgtest" -> there
should be "local" tests in debian/tests/control.
"Testsuite: autopkgtest-pkg-perl" -> autodep8 centralized tests. With
the new --no-auto-control you can disable the latter.

But as said, this field doesn't concern adt-run itself at all -- you
give it a package and it'll run it. It's just a hint to the
higher-layer CI system which decides which tests to run at a time.

So what's missing/wrong now?
