It's not only canonical, it works! Thanks.

in thread Skipping tests if a module is not available
I am curious what "canonical" means. Is it roughly equivalent to "used in lots and lots of well-written modules"?
And what is the best way of searching/browsing modules? Before troubling my fellow monks with this inquiry, I tried to find test scripts that tackled this same issue, and was perplexed not to be able to find any. I suspect it was the quality of my search rather than lack of relevant scripts to be found.
