japicompat/japize can be used for this purpose. Take the 1.1 and 1.2
files from the japize website and run japicompat to compare them.

Yes, it will do what you think and select the previous version tests
as well. Uses is for the choose script... or other scripts, to know
that test foo in foo.java also uses bar in bar.java (must be in same
package currently). So it would be nice in some cases to avoid code
duplication of utility methods useful to a particular subset of tests.
