Indeed. So just to close the loop on this, it sounds like everybody is in agreement that running the tests out-of-tree is a worthwhile goal. So I will focus on implementing this next. My rough idea is to generate a fresh directory for each test configuration in $builddir/path/to/testname.config and run "make -C $srcdir/path/to/testname" there. It looks like the right place to implemented this is probably dotest.py.
I like the idea of running dotest from lit, but I'll save this for later.
