Alas.  Nobody does!

I'ts unlikely there's any owner who would care enough to make a fuss--so
we keep using the tests, but they don't really get any love.

It's one of those annoyances we argue about once a year or so, and then
forget till next time.

So, maybe one way forward would be to reimplement the connectathon tests
for xfstests?
