One thing occurred to me with this convention that might be somewhat
of an issue: the file name can be quite long and might exceed the
width of the first column in the table formatted by the exec utility.
If exec strips characters that exceed the width of the column like
runall did we could either remove the "stdcxx" part of the file name
or modify exec to extend the width of the column to fit the longest
file name. Andrew, how hard do you think it would be to change exec
to do the latter?
