Could you explain this a little more?   I don't understand how we would 
measure this.     When  a  test is created or brought into client 
testing, it may find some number of bugs then it should pass and 
continue to pass.    Developers will find certain tests more useful than 
others as they find they catch issues in their changes, but it seems 
like that would be hard to measure as the issues would be resolved 
before they check in.
