[erlang-questions] common_test usability enhancement

I've been wondering how to have a common url for repeated ct tests. For
example if I'm fixing a few things I'd like to just refresh the browser

I think it could be accepted into OTP easily, but this only fixes half
the problem. The other part is harder.
I'd very much like to receive guidance on how to achieve my goal and
have it be good enough to be included in OTP. Perhaps it'd require an
option to disable the timestamp in the second part of the URL? I don't
