A long-time issue has been a consistent way for developers to 
effortlessly run tests on local builds. This patch introduces a new, 
alternative "run-test" target, which allows for a smoother developer 
experience in running tests. It does not modify or remove any existing 
ways of running tests, which are still needed for automated test systems 
and old scripts.
