Imho this should be either nocheck or notest, supporting both is a bit
pointless. Using notest or nocheck is also pretty useful for debugging
purposes, if you don't need a lengthy test but want to have a new build

It would probably make things more easy if dh_install{docs,examples,man}
 would check for that, similar to dh_strip checking for nostrip. Don't
know if they do so already, at least the manpage doesn't mention it.

Not sure how lintian should check for this, nodocs could be handled in a
completely different file which is included/called/... somehow from
