[dozens of options snipped]

Oh, good. Both (a) and (b) are certainly good info for the web page.

Many of the options are for transforming the output -- something I
prefer (as a Unix guy) to do myself with a filtering script I have
control over. Others will like it though, and I like some of the other
options -- especially the one which lists all tests, and the "run
tests which match this string" option.
