Subject Test framework

One thing that's popped up on the "Test suite layout" thread is the 
thought that we need to b0rk the canonical package and naming 
conventions for unit tests in order to be able to run things on the boot 
classpath of the VM.  I think this issue is important enough and 
fundamental enough to warrant it's own thread.

First, do we really need to do this?  I thought that we (Tim and I) had 
informally discussed this at ApacheCon and came to some good conclusion 
where we were able to figure out a trick.

Second, shouldn't we think about providing a test environment in which 
we can completely control the environment  - we can test the class 
library in a container that can be run in any VM so we have full control 
over security and other issues?

Of course, I'd like both.  If we do have the "trick" that we talked 
about, then we can use canonical JUnit (or TestNG) naming and package 
conventions, which I think is important.
