That's true. I have looked at this method, but when I saw the 
implications, I just step back.

We nned something a little bit different. Most of the tests we have 
should use this kind of process :
1) initialize data
2) do the test
3) restore the initial state.

For instance, if we want to test a DelRequest, the step (1) would simply 
inject the data, then (2) will remove it, and (3) will be empty. 
Pierre-Arnaud is worling on such tests that use DSML, because you can 
write them in one single file containing the AddRequest, the 
RemoveRequest and the SearchRequest to be sure we don't have the removed 
entry anymore.

Wait and see :)
