While a math library where each test is isolated would work fine, a gui would 
not as they have state. Example a test that should be skipped instead pops up a 
new window that blocks out an underlying window. The tests that would have 
worked for the next group of steps on the underlying window now fails. Now I 
have a false negative. Which for very small tests might be fine, but when 
running with thousands of steps possibly for days this will not work. The only 
way around this that I could think of would be to restart the gui for every 
test, and put all the steps into a single test, but with thousands of steps 
this will take longer than the current manual method.
 ATF seems to be closer to what I want than others, so looks like I can just 
put in my hacks to get what I need. I find the levels, and grouping that 
currently exist very useful, so hope this feature remains.
