Correct. You can filter in a couple of ways. One way is to provide a 
path to the level in the testsuite tree you wish to limit the testing 
to, for example the samples or sptests, or you use the new filter 
command Ben added to the tester where you can wild card select a group 
of tests. This lets you rerun a specific family of tests you are working 
on. I am yet to use this new feature.

Making these things as clear as possible always helps. I would welcome a 
patch. :)
