[cmake-developers] ctest parallelism for --repeat-until-failure

I have a question regarding the behavior of ctest with regard to the --repeat-until-failure option. It seems that this option sequentializes
test execution for single tests in a test suite, while different tests can be run parallel to each other.

Is this the desired behavior? This is causing delays for my test suite, because some long-running tests are sequentialized. Would you be
willing to accept a contribution that changes this? I realize this would be a backwards compatibility issue, because running the same test
in parallel would break some tests, so I'd propose adding a new flag to ctest that would be disabled by default. Maybe
--parallelize-repetitions ?
