Well, I was kind of waiting for the rest of Lukas' patch that
introduced config sections to be finished and committed before
touching that same code...

On the count of 3. 1... 2... 3...

There's a bit of infrastructure work to make it a reality - all of
the CLI parsing/validity checks assumes tests are numbered and match
a sepcific regex, as do some of the test list building functions.
That all needs to be reworked, and up until now it hasn't been a
huge priority for me so I haven't started that work yet.

You're more than welcome to hack on it if you want....
