In the case of a "rewrite". I think we actually create


to contain the modified tests, and then disable the ones in the current

I'd prefer to leave them in, and just point out that they fail if ptys are
used. Is it possible to fix the ptys so these pass?

We need to document everything we decide to accept the Linux behavior over
the specs behavior.
