I believe we already have this capability.  Each test can list its
requirements in its Tags line.  Then the `choose' script will omit
tests which don't match the tag list given it.

Yeah.  Right now the only defined tags are related to version: JDK1.0,
JDK1.1, and JDK1.2.  Adding more tags is easy.  The hard part is
determining which tags are the ones we care about.
