Personally, I would have a way of uniquely identifying each test in your test suite.
I think it's better to assign the unique id to the bug/test-case because they tend to be more stable than the test suite (especially when you start refactoring).

    If you give each test a unique identifer, you can also track which tests handle which requirements. I know this would be useful for other reasons.

    The ID should be something that is on the test-level without reference to which file or subsystem it deals with. Maybe, an order of creation? Then, the test suite is actually just a list of the individual test IDs that should be run?

[marioroy]: LA if the find worked from Unix command line, or does it not. Likely a quoting issue inside Perl qx.
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, the find worked fine at the command line.
[marioroy]: LA, yeah. than there's no reason why it cannot work inside qx. But chatting is hard in PM. I cannot see the code now.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: sometimes a quick glance isn't enough.
[Lady_Aleena]: What?! Can't stat ~/Music: No such file or directory? The ~/ doesn't expand?
