The idea is to feed this information to lit (as it needs to know about the set of all tests), which can then run them with a bigger (smaller?) granularity. The interpretation of the test results (skip,fail, ...) will still be done by the lit test format, only now it could do it at a test-method level instead of file-level.
I thought the intention was going to be parallelize at file-granularity rather than method granularity, since the whole point of grouping tests together into classes is that they can share similar set up and tear down which may be expensive to perform multiple times. If we're going to parallelize at method-granularity, I would rather have one .py file per method.
