10.2 and then focus on ideal testing strategies later when we have leisure to do so.  To me,
your original proposal to add  a _sed.properties for  each of the tests would be that route?
 Would you agree?

I also think that getting this in to the 10.2 release is getting time 
critical.  I think checking in the sed stuff is ok, leaving the better
solution as the next step in incremental development.

>>getDatabaseProductVersion and getDriverVersion() report only the four digit Derby
version number and not the svn build number.   It would be useful to return  the full version
including the build number  as sysinfo does: e.g. "10.1.2.4 - (392472)", That way it will
be clear from application logs that collect this information exactly what revision level they
are running if they are using rolled up fixes on the maintenance branch between releases.
>>There may be risk in doing this however if applications are parsing the version information,
but hopefully they will use getDatabaseMajorVersion() , getDatbaseMinorVersion, getDriverMajorVersion,
and getDriverMinorVersion for such proccessing.
