I considered that but wasn't sure about all possible (future) uses of 
reset(). But yes, it can wait until actually needed - if ever.

I will try implementing the rest and see how it turns out.

Good point, but when self-tests are skipped it's done in a way that 
doesn't change the general behavior. Current code in fmt_test():

	if (options.flags & FLG_NOTESTS) {
		format->private.initialized = 2;
		return NULL;
