Actually, the word "dynamically" is somewhat misleading. What it means
is that you can add nodes not defined in the test specification (and
remove nodes defined in the specification) at the time you *start the
test run*. See ct_master:run/3. There is no support for adding or
removing nodes when tests are already running.
