I don't understand, what do you mean by "pick these test driver
enhancements"? What kind of "knobs" are there in tests? Shouldn't the
tests "just work" with no kind of special configuration of the tests be
needed? No user is going to know to enable something special.

Make the tests "just work" please, because given the large number of
them, no one is going to know to look for special things.
