Looked a bit (now). Somewhat complicated to make perfect (enemy of good)

print_test_description could be added as first line in 
test_known_broken_ok_ (then inconsistent with test_known_broken_failure_)
or in test_ok_ just before calling test_known_broken_ok_ 
(test_known_broken_ok_ is called only once in

but it looks like test_check_missing_external_prereqs_ and
test_report_skip_ may be called before print_test_description is called
(and there may be more...)

We've accumulated quite a bit of mess during these years to the test
system, which makes it harder to do larger adjustments (and not (yet)
mentioning even larger refactorings...).
