Perhaps... but unit tests should *all* run all the time. When you break
something, and indeed more than one test fail, go after the lower-level ones
first, and the other might go away as well. Sorting the unit tests is not
worth it IMHO. We used to do that, list explicitly the test methods to call,
and the test classes, to kind of do what you want, but kept on 'loosing'
tests. An automatic way to find test is much better. But that's just me!

Cheers, --DD

Right.  They are.  I hope I've adequately explained my reasons for this.
