Add links to specific commands within a test

Why It's Useful:

Being able to link to commands directly makes it easier to discuss test steps where failures occur.  Currently, the only way to discuss a specific command is to describe what it does, what it returns or the time it occurred.  Customers often don't give enough detail to find specific commands, and even when they do there's significant scrolling to find the relevant command.

Who it's useful for:

Support staff when helping customers.  Customer when discussing reasons for failure with their coworkers.

How I imagine it working:

Clicking on a test command would change the test page URL to include a HTML anchor or command number, similar to line number selection on Github.  Navigating to that URL would open the test page with the command list scrolled to that command, displaying the relevant screenshot.
