I want to emphasize that there's no parallel between our test suite, and 
the TCK.  The TCK is a special test suite because passing it confers the 
status of "compatibility with the spec" as defined by the JCP.

Passing the test suite for harmony means.... that you passed harmony's 
test suite.

I'm sure that we all know that, but i didn't want someone from the 
outside drawing the wrong conclusion, that we're somehow trying to 
replace the TCK.  People have made this assumption before (and things 
far weirder...)
