And as a bit of an "extra" from this, we could perhaps use Derby's own SQL/XML 
operators to parse the query plans and pull-out the "pieces of interest", which 
would in turn (in a dream world) allow us to write functional tests that can 
verify the query plan in a assertion-based way instead of just dumping thousands 
(and thousands) of lines of output to a master file and looking for the one or 
two lines that actually matter...
