It's desirable for test names to be stable so that results can be compared 
over time, which means a presumption that renaming an existing testcase is 
bad unless the name is really, really confusing (a pair testname-1.c and 
testname_1.c might count as confusing, but not test.C unless there's 
another very similar test in the same directory, in which case the "test" 
part would need changing).
