Ah, okay thanks for the detailed reply. I see what you mean now, and
you're right those things are not possible without macros and I can
see where they are useful in some situations. My experience over the
last 5 or so years is that I write the test and get it working and
after that, I don't see a failure for months or years. If there is a
failure I just set a breakpoint. So I have not invested much in terms
of features such as reporting the file and line number.
