yeah, you are plain right.

We have done some kind of standardization for tests in 1.0, but it'sd :
1) not perfect
2) not documented
3) slow in 1.5 for many reasons (mainly because we are initializing the 
server for each single test)

ok, just perfet !

well, if you can spend an hour looking at tests done in core-unit and in 
server-unit, it would also help you a lot. Can you do that? Maybe your 
approach plus what we have can overlap a lot, and you can spare a lot of 
time, and bring the tests to a new level of usability !

Thanks a lot, Ole! This is very valuable !
