Thanks Christian, Christian, and Cristian! :-)

(Cristian: I cc'd the list with your response since I'm sure it was meant
as part of the discussion.)

Maybe it could be semi-smart as well:

- the first time QtC sees the project, run the scan
- if no tests are found, pop up a dialog "I didn't find any tests to run,
so I can stop looking for them each time this project is loaded. You can
turn this scan on or off in <wherever this preference lives>. You can find
out more about Autotests <here>." <Turn Test Scan Off> <Leave Test Scan On>

This would also help make the Autotests feature more visible.
