Agreed.  Tests descriptions are redundant if they are associated to a
specific PR.  I sometimes wonder what will happen the next time we
change PR databases, but I guess it shouldn't be hard to implement some
mapping.

I do not care what test cases are named.  I tend to follow 'YYYYMMDD-N'
for test cases with no PR associated and 'prXXXXX' for the others.  I'll
use 'pass-XX' for very specific tests.

I can't think what useful purpose would serve having a convention for
test names, but if folks want one, I won't mind.
