bug#26337: 26.0.50; Command to run tests with latest source

From: Tino Calancha
Subject: bug#26337: 26.0.50; Command to run tests with latest source
Date: Sun, 02 Apr 2017 14:28:10 +0900

Severity: wishlist

I often while debugging follow this workflow:

1) Make some changes in one branch.
2) Compile Emacs.
3) Run one test file with:
M-& emacs -batch -l ert -l ? -f ert-run-tests-batch-and-exit RET

I never remember the exact command in 3), so i always first check the manual.
We have `ert-run-tests-interactively', but that command won't use
the just compiled sources: you need first to reload the new .elc.

I just wrote one command to do 1-3 above.
Interactively prompts for the file with the tests.
With a prefix argument, also prompts for the selector.  Default to run
all the tests.

Do you think could be worth to have such a command in ert.el?
