[tbot] [Discussion] Calling tbot from within the source directory

currently calling tbot from some directory that is not the directory
containing the testcases is a bit inconvenient.

For example the product specific testcase directory has the following

    ├── boards
    │   └── my-board.py
    ├── labs
    │   └── my-lab.py
    └── tc
        └── my-testcases.py

Then I would have to call tbot from another directory like this:

    $ tbot -T /path/to/tbot-privat \
      -l /path/to/tbot-privat/labs/my-lab.py \
      -b /path/to/tbot-privat/boards/my-board my_test_case

That is a bit tiresome. A `-C` parameter like git(1) has, would solve
it, but I think accessing the source code via the cwd in the testcases
as a fallback would be nice.

I might just be my different understanding of things. I like to be in
the directory of the stuff that should be tested, not where the
testcases are located. It also makes sense for me if multiple source
directories need to be "tested" on the same hw.

What do you think about this?
