That's true, but....  I always imagined that people would be working in 
the modules anyway, so there isn't much gain.

also it is easier to create an exclude list for a

Yes, that could be.  Interesting idea.

However, I did imagine that we'd give the modules a bit of freedom and 
independence for testing - a global exclude list might impact that?
