  Description     : Aggregate tests to make them run faster.

This module borrows a trick from Apache::Registry to load up your tests at
once, create a separate package for each test and wraps each package in a
method named run_the_tests. This allows us to load perl only once and related
modules only once. If you have modules which are expensive to load, this can
dramatically speed up a test suite.
