Why not?  Sometimes you may want to search for a progression.  This flag makes
it easier for the user to simply answer the question after each run instead of
reversing the logic in their head (which would be required to use the tool to
find progressions without the regression tag).

I agree, although "nightly builds" is what we've been using to refer to them
for a while now.  I like Mark's 'bisect-nightly-builds' or, combining Mark's
and your idea, 'bisect-builds'.

I realize that not everyone is a Perl guru, but it's the scripting language I
know best, and I thought it would be better to get the tool into the hands of
the masses than for me to spend time learning a new scripting language (at
least for this project).
