You can actually -- they get named "command1", "command2", etc, same
names that appear in the logs and in summary.

The interpretation of that would be a bit confusing as Tests: is
plural and can specify multiple tests.

I'd slightly change that idea to be Test-Command-foobar:, to provide
an optional name? Test-Command: would then continue to get
autogenerated commandN names.
