    I'd wondered this myself in the past. It also occurs to me that it would be pretty keen to allow a verbose TAP-2-TAP harness to emit the contents of the individual tests as groups, so that your tests 1, 2, 3 could be expanded to three groups showing the results of the tests as a whole. If I recall correctly, groups are arbitrarily nestable, so a series of harnesses could run a very large test suite, producing a single comprehensive TAP document.

    It would also be pretty keen to attach some metadata to each group, indicating monikers for rerunnable tests. Then one could write a nice little web or curses TAP browser with the ability to re-queue failed test groups on various levels. Then, plug that into Smolder...

    I really need to make some more time to tap at this problem.
