I do want to tackle them, but carefully and slowly.  Like you said,
Trial has reached a local optimum of utility.

I'm more than happy to discuss big changes.  I have a largish patch
that Robert Collins and I worked on at the .au sprint.  The changes
separate dry run from the main tree, and are a step towards separating
the code that runs tests from the code that finds tests.  Tell me
where you want it mailed.
