Approved but not yet committed:
- [PATCH] gfortran testsuite: implicitly cleanup-modules, part 2
Before actually pushing this, I ment to ask if we *want* to make
sure that we do not add superfluous cleanup-module calls in the
future (which would slow down testing needlessly)?

If so we would either have to manually reject occurances of those during
patch-review or install a warning or the like if there is an explicit
cleanup-modules call yielding the same set as the now automatically
determined set.

I would go for the manual method: As cleanup-modules is something which developers tend to forget, I do not think that many patches will include them. On then simply tries to reduce those by patch review. - If patch developers do not see it in other files, the chance is high that they do not even know (or remember) about that feature in a few months.

And after some time (1/2 year, 1 year?), one can check whether a spurious clean-up modules has slipped in - or whether some cleanup-module is missing. I expect that there will be none or very, very few cases.
