talexb has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm fixing tests on an old code-base, and have come to realize that it would be really handy to be able to ask Test::More for the number of failing tests. I'd like to use that to stop testing after I see a dozen or so failures (not including failures inside a TODO block).

My methodology is to run a limited number of tests, then go back and figure out how to logically put the failing tests inside a TODO block.
