Make running "MSTest" tests MUCH faster

Running unit tests using MSTest is very slow (when compared to alternative farameworks like NUnit). Whilst I love the integration with TFS, code coverage and the like at times even a small test project takes so long to run that it seriously disrupts your "flow".

        Yes, I agree 100%. As it stands now, MSTest is basically unusable if you are trying to do TDD, even on small projects. In order for TDD to be effective, you need to be able to run tests quickly and often. Right now it's taking 10-20 seconds just to run one test (not counting the compile time). Seriously?
