Hi again,

I just thinked about this retry-feature and how I could use that in my 

One question came up: Isn't that actually already an escalation strategy?
Because e.g. how does a test after multiple execution report the result? 
Is a test that successes after 3 runs as successfully as one, that 
successes after 1 execution? I think that should be configurable..

Best regards
