in thread Toggling test plans with vim

That seems like a good idea to me. Why wouldn't this be a reasonable alternative to keeping track of a test count:

use Test::More 'declare_done'; # tests here.... done_testing();
I've declared that my plan is to declare when I'm done testing. At the end of the test script, I do just that. Now, if the script exits early and done_testing() hasn't be called, we know there was a problem, and we know where it is, because we know the last test that was run.

    Yeah. That's certainly a lot simpler than counting.

    I wish someone would write that module.

    Excellent idea. Simplicity incarnate.

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
