Well, an obvious improvement would be better grouping of the actions, i.e.
use a submenu and indicate on the menus title that these actions are
testing-related. Can you give an overview of the actions (just the
currently used text) and what each does? That would help in finding out
which might just be overkill to have and which are useful.

Well, then refactor those actions in veritas to use the assistants - or
remove them where they simply don't provide additional usefulness. 


You are standing on my toes.
