We should be able to add/run/ignore individual tests, instead of whole test-files that contain many tests.

Any individual test should be addressable by a name.

This bug should involve changing the test runner, and not any particular test files, except perhaps only as a demonstration of functionality.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
A simple means would be to choose some way of delimiting tests by some string.  Since so man of our tests so far begin with (regex) "^#\s*[Bb]ug[:# ]*(\d)", that might be a good starting point. The text following that regex and before the next match could be called "bugNNN".

Or, we could pick a different delimiter, since not all tests have bug numbers.  

Some tests and files presently have no usable text descriptions.  We can edit/split those manually later, all at once.

I don't think we will ever get to do this one.
