Bug#879197: autopkgtest: Please support @testdeps@ i.e. subset of @builddeps@ marked with <!nocheck>

Package: autopkgtest
Version: 5.0.1
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

These days one is able to mark build-dependencies that are needed to run tests
by annotating the Build-Depends with <!nocheck>.

It would be nice to support a @testdeps@ syntax for Depends: in autopkgtest as a
convenience alias for all of the Build-Depends that are marked with <!nocheck>.
This helps to avoid duplication and makes it easier to maintain.
