I have been trying this, and have several questions.

How does this work if a test is already expecting a command line
argument? How does the test know which are "input files" and which are
normal command line arguments?

My tests currently are done with the unit-test rule. How do I convert
them appropriately?

What is INPUT_FILES really? For example, if I have a DLL in the
INPUT_FILES section, will it try to link it into the executable? I
specifically do not want to link with this file. I want only to load
the DLL/SO and not have it linked to the application at all.
