Currently, the AFW tests are completely skipped at the scons layer if afwdata can not be located. This is bad for two reasons:
1. Surely there are tests in AFW that can be usefully run without access to data files.
2. When we switch to a proper test harness (e.g.
DM-3901) an important metric is the number of tests executed compared with the number of tests skipped.
Each test file (or even each test) should determine itself whether it should be skipped based on afwdata availability. This should not be a global switch.
