It's like this by design since some testing frameworks may add
tests dynamically.  We do want to try to improve this, however --
maybe by populating the tree initially w/ static tests where
that is possible or just by remembering more from previous runs.

I agree it's a pain to have to run a large test file just to
get at one test within it (we have this issue in Wing's own
tests too).
