Given the recent addition of process_run_count argument to PerfTest(), which controls the number of samples taken when performing an individual test in a test set, the value of this argument should be exposed as a command line option, e.g., --sampleCount.
Note that this is different from the --repeat argument proposed in bug 100030, which controls the number of times the entire test set is run. In particular, the number of samples (controlled by process_run_count) determine the number of data points used in statistical analysis; while different --repeat runs are not aggregated for statistical analysis in the shown results, i.e., are treated as distinct statistical result sets.
Let's stick to the same terminology: process run count.

thanks, we agreed on IRC to change this to test-runner-count (test_runner_count), for option and argument names, since this corresponds to the number of test runner (DRT/WTR) instances invoked (in serial execution - not parallel)
