+1 This has been a long time in coming.

The common complaint is that by renumbering the tests, we break historical
comments such as "fixes bar_test FOO". But those comments are often
versioned, so a little archaeology can divine the answer. I don't think
such concerns should keep us from moving forward in the test suite.
