I prefer Test* as well but don't want to fight Maven. Going with Test* means maintaining include
or exclude lists which is an extra step that can lead to error. We already had an issue with
some tests not being run because the includes were not set up right.

Based on the other replies I'd renamed all tests in impl to match **/* to give consistency;
we can always change it again.
