Please could anybody tell me why is it necessary to add
loadTestsFromPackage ? I dont really think its necessary.

Its another method and I dont think that complicating the loaders
interface be a good decision.

What is the difference between loadTestsFromPackage and
loadTestsFromModule ? The only difference I see so far is the
discovery strategy, so IMHO a separate loader should handle this ...

Pls I'd really want to understand
