Yes, you should. ;-)

I would support you. If you make a patch for it, and then agree to
update it as needed to fix any problems on the dashboard, I'll foster
it through the process of getting it into CMake 'next', and encourage
the dev team to accept it into 'master'.

If you do decide to contribute to ctest, you can start here:

I would recommend the name "SKIP_REGULAR_EXPRESSIONS" (plural with an
'S' if it's multiple expressions, and "SKIP" not "SKIPPED") since the
existing property is named "SKIP_RETURN_CODE".

Good luck!

David C.
