Additionally, test_id_list_default and its IDOPTION interaction are not clear.

For instance, if you can *only* do default lists via --load-list $IDFILE, one would want test_id_list_default to create a file on the fly; alternatively, if by default you want a regex match, you wouldn't want that. So basically we have to overhaul this to make it lovable for e.g. trial and bzr plugins.

summary: - be more clear about how IDOPTION is use
+ IDOPTION needs exploring

11:11 < lifeless> I want to be able to say, for a bzr plugin 'this is how you trigger the default set of tests for the plugin', 'this is how you run a human reduced set for the plugin', 'this is how you run a precise list' and (probably)
                  'this is how you turn off testr managing the list of tests'
11:12 < james_w> makes sense
