except html is neither interactive nor fast/convenient ;-)

The use case I'm thinking of is mostly driver devel/debug where I want
to check if some updated version of a change I am working on fixed the
regressions, and that sort of thing.  (Or re-run the failed tests with
some FD_MESA_DEBUG env var debug flag.)  So ability to re-run
individual tests (or group of tests based on filtered result status,
etc) is what I'm looking for.  Versus digging through .json or html to
find individual cmdlines for some 100's of tests ;-)
