> To make our tests robust against timing problems and eventual consistent stores, we need
to do more spin & wait for state.
> We have some code in {{GenericTestUtils.waitFor}} to await a condition being met, but
the predicate it calls doesn't throw exceptions, there's no way for a probe to throw an exception,
and all you get is the eventual "timed out" message. 
> We can do better, and in closure-ready languages (scala & scalatest, groovy and some
slider code) we've examples to follow. Some of that work has been reimplemented slightly in
> I propose adding a class in the test tree, {{Eventually}} to be a successor/replacement
for these.
> # has an eventually/waitfor operation taking a predicate that throws an exception
> # has an "evaluate" exception which tries to evaluate an answer until the operation stops
raising an exception. (again, from scalatest)
> # plugin backoff strategies (from Scalatest; lets you do exponential as well as linear)
> # option of adding a special handler to generate the failure exception (e.g. run more
detailed diagnostics for the exception text, etc).
> # be Java 8 lambda expression friendly
> # be testable and tested itself.
