Hmm, maybe we need a 'testrunner.rc' file with personal-preference options, then. Assuming that the script looked for it in sensible places (homedir, instance_home/etc, maybe?), I could live without changing the default in the script. > BTW, within the next week, I will be integrating the new test > runner into z2 and z3.

Having such an option is usual, for the cases when some other script is driving your testrunner; if '-q' cancels any previous '-v' (explicit or default), then you can shut off unneeded output driven by the upstream script.
