This is actually the one time that we can't eat our own dog food.
Remember that the whole point of the test suite is to prove that you
have implemented APR correctly.  If we implement the test suite on top
of APR, then you need to have an APR implementation before you can test
it.  That just doesn't work.  The test suite needs to be so generic that
I can begin to test the file part of APR before I ever touched the
process/thread part.
