Another general question to the list

Hi Folks --
An idea that has surfaced numerous times in various ways over the
last 40 years can be stated as a question:
If unit tests are a good idea, then shouldn't we try to generate the
method code directly from them?
In other words, there could be/should be a language in which one
programs in terms of the criteria to be achieved, and the system
tries to come up with code that meets those criteria. (The last one
of these that seemed really interesting was ART by Inference Corp
(out of the CMU context).)
Anyone know of any interesting current work along these lines?
