I agree -- we need to do that.

In fact we could go so far as to include all modules' (compiled) tests
JARs into the "hdk", so that module developers can run all tests to
validate the changes they are making to their particular module.

Of course, the build system will continue to check out everything, build
it together and run all tests, just like it does today.
