Better support for other plugins to determine which tests are included/excluded and the order
the tests get run
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: SUREFIRE-526
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/SUREFIRE-526
             Project: Maven Surefire
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: plugin
            Reporter: Nick Pellow


Currently, it is possible to provide the 'test' pattern to the maven-surefire-plugin to include/exclude
specific tests to be run.
This can be set on the MavenProject instance of any plugin which runs prior to the surefire
plugin.
Since this is just a pattern of tests to include, it has the following shortcomings:

* To excludes a single test, you need to add _all_ tests, minus the test to exclude
* The order of the test patterns is not used when the tests get run.

If there is no better means to control which tests get run and in which order from outside
the surefire plugin, how do you suggest this be achieved? 
This may require changes to maven core to allow attributes <String,Objects> be set as
well as Properties.
