The reason is simply I have a bunch of tests I want to run that
require some common infrastructure (in this case a certain package
needs to be initially setup). I'd rather not duplicate the
infrastructure for each test. I can instead of using 'alone' put the
tests into a make file test case, basically collapsing them into one
test. A little unsatisfying but probably the best solution and seems
to be what is done in other areas of the testsuite.
