Now there was only one other thing to consider. I don't think we should
do it, but it should be mentioned in case someone has a good reason why
we should.

Should we pass the suite/test into startTestRun? Why? Because some
runners want to indicate progress - how many tests have run and how many
have yet to run. I decided *not* to because that interoperates very
badly with streaming interfaces, and believe that progress should be
incorporated into the incremental interface between test and result,
rather than requiring an up-front analysis of the size of the test
