Subject Re: Getting Mustella to work.

No, I don't think the images should be removed. Once a test has been
created and the test author believes the test is running correctly, the
author creates the baseline against which all other runs are judged.
Should the code being tested change, the baseline comparison can tell if
something is amiss. If you don't have the baseline present you would not
know there was a test failure.

At least that's how it should work, as I understand it.
