NP. I'm sure it helps :)

I don't think you want a separate list for each test.
Hmm, or OTOH, if you want that, then make sure to have a
unique file name, e.g. mytest.testlist.
Then you could simply do
find . -name "*.testlist"|xargs grep "TESTS: MyFunc"
to search *all* list files check whether a particular function
is being tested already.

Creating such a document is on my ToDo list, but let me
alter winebootup first to make it submittable ;-)
