Also, for some time now we've had support to run python tests by passing
the function name as an argument, rather than passing a test number.
So we could encourage people to refer to python tests using their function
names. That would avoid such problems.
Unfortunately this does not work for C tests...

Back on topic: I don't see a problem with splitting up the merge tests.
