I was going to suggest options "-T 0123456789abcx" which should exclude
("x") every test class. You would then put your tests in the user database
with a type of "d" or something, and they should be the only ones run...
however, it doesn't work. Many tests still seem to run.

I filed ticket #84 for this..

Then I tried creating the user tests with a type of "d" and ran "-T d" which
should only run class "d" tests, but that didn't work either. So the whole
tuning include/exclude thing needs to be vetted to see what I screwed up
there :-)
