Perhaps.  But if you do it as a test-plan writer, you'll end up
with a more general tool than a sampler would be.

And yet another advantage of a generator:  it's probably easier
to write, since you don't have to worry about all this stuff.
You only have to figure out how to create test-plan elements and
insert them into the list -- probably far easier than grokking
the fullness of the test-runner machinery...

The acronym for "the powers that be" differs by only one letter
