It appears it would be really handy to have a -t argument for Mutt tests, to run an individual test. Currently, trying to validate changes to an individual Mutt test can be problematic if adjacent tests in its local manifest.ini are causing the harness to exit or hang. 

It doesn't appear currently you can run the test you want, bypassing the other hanging tests, unless you re-order the .ini in that test folder.
We only want to allow the tests to be run via the manifest. The -t option can be problematic in many ways. You might want to adjust the manifest file so failing tests will not be run at this time. If we have constant failures all of them should be filed as bugs.

This one is a wontfix, sorry.

Ok, no probs. Will use the manifest in that way, in this scenario.
