Please set things up so that it runs the tests again, even if nothing has 
changed.  (It doesn't have to rebuild things.)

It's reasonable for tests to use a random number generator so running again 
may not be redundant.  Or maybe I'm chasing a weird bug where I'd like to put 
things into a loop for a while to see if I can tickle a timing problem.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
