Thanks for explaining it so well! I really struggle to understand when I'd use this in my workflow, and you did a great job showing examples of that.

So, if all the tests ran on every commit, this would be less useful- unless they were something like performance tests that were relatively subjective.

Usually I try and find the bug, then look at the history for that line or file to see why that change was made, in effect doing almost the opposite of bisect.
