> Our junit tests are written in such a way that we avoid false failures because of absence
of optional pieces of software.
> This is convenient when developers want to do a 'quick' test run. 
> However, it's not so good when we think we're running with all optional pieces in place,
but something's (gone) missing; we'll not see it and it may go unnoticed for a long time.
We should get warned about missing pieces when we want *all* tests to run.
> One suggestion was to put some kind of check in the test org.apache.derbyTesting.junit.EnvTest.
