A small note - didn't the Avalon list seperate their testing code from
the core and put it on Sourceforge? IIRC.

Ah - just went there.  Yes, that is the site of the code (Kevin Burton
is the developer) but there is no downloads, no web page, no nothing. 
Anyone know what happened?  Did it get dropped?

Apart from that, +1 for the tests.
