    run_tests.sh: use '-o' option. Added tests for '--skeleton' option.

which is not helpful, as that's where the tests that fail got introduced. However, it does mean it's not a regression per-se, and rather was always broken...

The failing tests are:
$ cat test-suite.log | grep FAIL
# XFAIL: 0
# FAIL: 1
FAIL: run_tests.sh
FAIL repeat-07_default.gir--skeleton.re
FAIL unicode_blocks.u--skeleton--encoding-policy(ignore).re
FAIL unicode_blocks.x--skeleton--encoding-policy(ignore).re
FAIL run_tests.sh (exit status: 1)
