#' Watches code and tests for changes, rerunning tests as appropriate.
#'
#' The idea behind `auto_test()` is that you just leave it running while
#' you develop your code.  Everytime you save a file it will be automatically
#' tested and you can easily see if your changes have caused any test
#'  failures.
#'
#' The current strategy for rerunning tests is as follows:
#'
#' - if any code has changed, then those files are reloaded and all tests
#'   rerun
#' - otherwise, each new or modified test is run
#'
#' In the future, `auto_test()` might implement one of the following more
#' intelligent alternatives:
#'
#' - Use codetools to build up dependency tree and then rerun tests only
#'   when a dependency changes.
#' - Mimic ruby's autotest and rerun only failing tests until they pass,
#'   and then rerun all tests.
