XCTestCase.name property doesn't seem to affect anything

Number:rdar://FB7568421 Date Originated:2020-02-07
Status:Open Resolved:
Product:Xcode Product Version:11.3.1 (11C504)
Classification:Incorrect/Unexpected Behavior Reproducible:
When an XCTestCase subclass overrides ‘name’, the new name isn’t used in either the Test Navigator in Xcode or in the log output. You have to override the undocumented `languageAgnosticTestMethodName` instead. (And that still doesn’t allow customizing the whole line for textual output; you have to also override `nameForLegacyLogging` in that case.)

You can see an example of this in the attached archive’s ExpectedOutputTests class (also at https://belkadan.com/source/ROSE-8/commit/6ba964352de647ceb0394a3d54e302a15f1e672f).
