Thanks Roboticus,

This was actually an approach that I had already considered, and was probably going to be my fall back if I couldn't find a more elegant solution. I think my main issue with this approach is that it is very much "hit and miss" in terms of creating the groupings - insofar as you can't really predict how long the testing of any particular group will take, and there might be very large discrepancies in individual run times, which I'd really have no control over. My preference is for a solution that will (roughly) do them all in one go, which I can run at fairly frequent intervals - say every 5 minutes.

Cheers,
Darren :)
