I agree, I think we could avoid a lot of potential confusion regarding 
Derby testing in the future by having (from the start) an easy way to 
see which tests are written for JUnit and which are not, especially as 
more JUnit-based tests are added. Forking the derbyTesting source tree 
might be a good way to do this - at least I cannot come up with any 
better ideas at the moment.

If this becomes a general policy, it should at least be explicitly 
mentioned in the README.html in the testing directory.
