Actually my long term plan is to include metadata in the testcases which
would, among other things, describe which syscalls/libcalls the tests is
excercising and I want this information to be propagated to the test
runner as well, so instead of relying on one binary file per syscall we
would have proper metadata describing the tests.

And the biggest problem here is that it looks that there is very little
interest in investing time into this approach. I've send a (quick and
dirty) RFC patch that tried to show a direction for such work, but
nearly nobody replied to it, so I postponed the work a bit.
