Hi Shri,

> Thibaut, I have a change to irtests.bat which will give an option to run the tests in series or in parallel. I will push this through in my next commit so folks can chose how they want to run the tests...
> The one issue with running in series is that if a task fails, you want to run the remaining tasks as well so that you can have the full list of failures. However, if you just keep running all tasks in series, the output of the failing task can scroll out, and then you lose the information of which test failed. The right solution is to redirect the output of all the tasks so that you can inspect the log files to see the details of the failure.
> Setting up the output redirection, etc, is more work. A rake task would be nice so that all the logic can be written in Ruby rather than in irtests.bat. I will leave this for another day. Let's see how far irtests.bat can scale...

thanks for the change! And yeah, let's see how the batch can scale. If
it gets boring, I'll try to take a stab at redirecting output.
