#3303: --run_test arbitrary depth matching

 Hi Gennady,

 That's awesome that you have added the ability to run individual tests and
 suites by name.
 However, while using this feature, I found myself keeping adding "*/"
 before the test name and rerunning the test program until it finally
 matches the nesting level and run the test I need (because usually I just
 see the test I want to run in the source code and I don't really care how
 deep is it in the hierarchy).

 Could you please add a possibility to match "any" nesting level? [[BR]]
 I would suggest double-star syntax: [[BR]]
    --run_test=**/my_test [[BR]]
 will match "my_test", "s1/my_test", "s1/s2/s3/s4/my_test" etc. [[BR]]
    --run_test=s1/**/my_test [[BR]]
 will match "s1/my_test", "s1/s2/s3/s4/my_test" etc, but will not match
 "my_test" and "s2/my_test".

 Thanks, [[BR]]
