Can we discuss the ways that we might get prove to recognize more than one extension?
Right now, I can say
prove --ext=.phpt --exec=/usr/local/bin/php
but I can't say
prove --ext=.phpt --ext=.t --exec=/usr/local/bin/my-test-dispatcher
Or even better
prove --ext=.t=/usr/local/bin/perl --ext=.phpt=/usr/local/bin/php
The ability to run .t and .phpt tests is a Big Deal to me here at work, and is something that hss never worked since I originally ported our test script "smoke" to be the generic prove we know today. Now, we're trying to fold back, but this feature missing makes those I'd convert to prove very sad.
