Is this test specific?  Sounds like its more specific to threading
concerns.  However I think testing multi-threaded code is your goal and
in that case we're probably going to need these constructs to setup a
multi-threaded test harness.  It does make sense.  Let's talk about this
some more.  I have a feeling the Transaction stuff you're working on is
driving some of this eh?

I needed that a couple months ago actually.

Sure this is just what we need I think.  Let me get it setup and
mavenize it and we can just start adding our test code and organizing
it.  I'll get on it right now.
