  You may have the better approach here. The likelihood of tests
running on a single file change is probably pretty low, so doing it on
a single commit with the understanding that a commit frequency is high
is probably the best way to go.

So is mine hence my wanting to do something about it. There are
actually a number of little rough edges like this that could be
addressed by a tool. One thing that caused me a problem when I first
started with erlang was understanding how to layout an otp project. So
I built a project generator that lays things out as they should be. Of
course, it's only useful once in awhile and even then mostly to
newbies but its a barrier that's fairly easy to remove.
