Some of these tests would be easy, things like "how robust is their
mmap implementation" or "how many times can we call open() before
we run out of fd's". Others are harder, such as "Does their TCP/IP
stack have a FIN_WAIT_2 timeout" :)

I think that's a good idea. We should generate some sort of "wish
list" of what we'd like to test for, and then pick the ones we
can do.

We'll need to something similar for 2.0 anyway :-)
