I think that would be great for checking configurations but it would be 
good to have a way to force all tests to run and fail if functionality 
you think intended to be  there is missing.  It seems in the nightlies 
if we don't see actual fail counts they don't get noticed at least for a 
while.  I don't know if this means multiple options or just one.
