Re: Debugging Tests

We don't seem to use verbose at all yet.  Perhaps it should be

Right now verbose controls whether PASS is printed for passing tests,
and it causes the simple test harness to add more information to the
FAIL message in a couple of cases.  This particular feature is used by

some other way.

The intent behind debug, as I understand it, is to provide any
relevant information to help in debugging a failing test case.
