It is now in our mainline build and test cycle and looks good, thanks Alex!

I tweaked the package names to fit in with the project conventions, and
renamed the test types from TestFoo to FooTest because that is the
pattern our test scripts will look for.

You may want to now get the latest code from the ARCHIVE module and
check what I did, and apply patches from there.
