IMHO, For integration testing it would be enough to run just one test
that verify that the change is not breaking major use case.

Running Eclipse for Java development is one of the major targets of DRLVM development,
so it would be very convenient to have just *one* Eclipse unit test,
that would model basic Eclipse workflow:
* create project
* inject java code
* compile java code
* (maybe) debug java code: set breakpoints, run the program, inquire variable state, etc.

To make this usable for DRLVM committers, the unit test needs to be readily
available, for example, .jar file committed directly to depends/ or downloadable
from some external source. Its download can be handled in exactly the same
way as other dependencies are downloaded by 'ant fetch-depends'.

As a final result, the committer will be able to run a *single* command,
that will verify that changes in the DRLVM do not break Eclipse use case.

Does this make sense?
