Not strictly correct - "glsa-check --list" does tell you if the system
is vulnerable: it highlights the entry in red, and sets [N] for the
entry.  --test is just a shortcut that allows individual tests, or with
"all" lists only those that fail the test.  --list|grep "\[N" is
actually better as it includes the description as well.
