Hi Elijah

I'm worryingly excited by this series

Yes it's a real pain to have to run all the tests to find the numbers of 
the ones you actually wanted to run. I like patch 3 as well, without it 
if you're only running a couple of tests it can be hard to find then 
amongst all the skipped tests. I had a quick read of the patches and 
they looked fine to me.

Best Wishes

Phillip
