[webkit-dev] run-webkit-tests --pixel-tests and text-based tests

Hey all,

I'm working on isPrinting() support for the Qt port and noticed that if I do 
something like this:

./Tools/Scripts/run-webkit-tests -p LayoutTests/printing/

Then I get lots of "failures" due to missing image baselines for tests like 

Thing is: Tests like the above are not pixel-based. So how do other test 
suites detect this?

I've mainly looked at chromium's TestShell and could not find anything obvious 
that detects this (the url does not contain /dumpAstText/ nor is the returned 
mimetype text/plain)...

Even when I add --skip-pixel-test-if-nseline to the invocation above, the 
images are still created.

How is this supposed to be handled? How do other ports handle this?
