This is easy to fix. We've talked about adding a "re-record" option
before. This option would import the file and write the old metadata
back in to the file.

We're already going to have to edit new tests most of the time
because they will depend on stuff like the accounts being setup, the
only reason we haven't done it that much yes is because we didn't
have a dependency mechanism. The only time we won't have to make
edits is if we re-record which as i stated can save the metadata.
Also, it's very easy to programmatically get a list of excluded and
available tests, I can write that method in a few minutes. Most large
tests systems use test metadata rather than static lists because once
you get past 20 test scripts it's a pain to maintain. This isn't the
last piece of metadata we'll be needing in the tests and this
mechanism can be extended much easier.
