Interactive mode basically turns all assert_screens into indefinite,halting, check_screens so a user can interactively add needles
What if a user wants a test to run through as far as it can, so they can retroactively needle, so they don't need to watch the test run closely for it's first run?
An "autoneedler" mode would be a confiugration option for a scenario which would modify all assert_screens to be check_screens so that openQA could do it's best to run through the test logic, which would then present a bunch of results in the dashboard which could be needled properly
This won't work for all scenarios, but could dramatically reduce the workload of setting up a new test scenario for basic runs in particular - interactive mode would take care of the more complex scenarios.

Adding a tag, not necessarily is what's the thing, but Gnome guys have an idea of how to generate the needles and have a needle editor that doesn't require the webUI somehow.
I'd like to explore that, and see what can be linked together between these two stories
