Do we care what order we check the parameters to a method that has
several parameters and may throw ArgumentException or
ArgumentOutOfRangeException depending on which parameter you get wrong?
If you get several parameters wrong, we could report a different problem

I might well go for continuing along that line, however I cannot think
of a way of automating the re-enabling. I don't really want to make
fixing a bug any harder than it is at the moment. Maybe a script that
just tests the ones that are ignored in such a manner, giving a list of
tests that are ignored but a) still fail, and b) pass. Could NAnt be
augmented in such a way?
