trial takes an argument at the command-line where you can specify a  
package or test case.

for example:

	trial twisted
	trial twisted.test
	trial twisted.test.test_explorer
	trial twisted.test.test_explorer.TestBrowser
	trial twisted.test.test_explorer.TestBrowser.test_chain

lets you get more and more specific.
