Yep - I just wanted to park them somewhere as I wanted to close the
JIRAs that they came in.  I thought that putting them in a conventional
place like 'src/test' would cause a violent allergic reaction in people
used to the unique innovation that is the DRLVM layout :)

Actually, we need to come up with a real test framework for these, and
hopefully pull the other tests out to join them.  I thought I brought
this up in a JIRA or note to the dev list.

While we're talking about it, should we consider a fresh layout for
DRLVM?  Maybe we can switch to a make-based build at the same time...
right now, the layout w/in vm/ is somewhat arbitrary :

1) There is an include directory in parallel with the modules


2) Some modules have their own include directories  (vm/vmcore/include)

3) Some don't (vm/em)

4) Some modules have src near the top :


5) Some don't


6) Some modules have strange branches by language deep in the path :


What do you think?
