And more :-)

Depends on how fast we can type :-)

Yes, yes, yes.

Because they don't work fine. I believe we had this discussion before... 
Please see the previous threads on tooling.

If you want to try to refactor the current tools in place, I suppose we 
could try that. But its a pretty drastic change, so I don't really see a 
step-wise process to do it. I think it would be better to just write a 
second set of tools, then when they're ready switch everythign over and 
delete the old tools.

I don't usually test demos when I do commits. That would really slow 
down the development process. If there is something in the demos that 
isn't covered in the tests, you should add it.
