Granted, the splice is a bit unclear; tweaked in r184.
The problem is that both jsl.py and unittest.main are trying to parse
the same command-line, and they don't understand each other's options.
Right off, I'd suggest invoking the test loader/runner directly instead
of using unittest.main, and handling --quiet and --verbose in jsl.py. (I
don't see a big need to support running only certain tests until we have
more of them.)
