Test framework - 'stop if too many errors feature'

Another feature I implemented a few weeks ago is 'stop if too many errors'.

Since an e-mail is sent for each test case failure, the e-mail inbox could be flooded if for example, an unhandled test environment issue occurs or the AUT build is completely broken. So to prevent that I have a parameter for how many test case failures that are tolerated before stopping a test run. Not that complicated either but good to have (especially if the e-mails are sent to a shared address...)
