Hmm. That makes at least one [potentially] common case difficult: I
used the same description for all my phases, and want to find any
results anywhere that have that description (i.e., I'd have to enter
it 3 times).

Hmm. So test builds have 2 descriptions, and test runs have 3

How do you see this data being used in the reporter -- can you
provide a use-case?

Is this a different way of looking at
