It might also be beneficial to allow finer grained results within a test
file. Let's say I have a test file stl_containers.cpp that tests
std::vector, std::list, etc. Now, if a compiler has a problem with one of
these (e.g. std::map) - if I understand the regression test system correctly
- it will mark this test as failed in the regression results and a user
would assume that all the stl_containers would be unusable!

What I would like is to be able to group sets of tests (like in the unit
tests), but to show a breakdown of those tests (e.g. for std::vector,
std::deque, etc.) so that if one of these groups fail, the user can see that
specific container doesn't work for a perticular compiler/platform.
