0) please do NOT top post

1) installed.db have no info about test or current.
   That info is in setup.ini

2) about changing setup way of working, we need someone to write
    a patch. Please feel free to send your proposed one.
   I doubt it is on the top list of anyone else to change
   the current behaviour
