  Description     : module for aggregating tests to make them run faster

A common problem with many test suites is that they can take a long time to
run. The longer they run, the less likely you are to run the tests.

Test::Aggregate 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 one 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.
