[py-dev] How to run a given test by name?

typically when troubleshooting multiple test failures, I want to be able to
run a single parametrized test case.

How can you tell py.test to run only tests matching a specific name.

For example, I'd like to be able to run:

py.test src --filter-by-name "test_mandatory_property[ZText]"

This would run all tests with a name
matching "test_mandatory_property[ZText]".

Is there a way to do that?
