Subject RE: [RT] Ideas on getting the entire test suite for the sdk to run in 10 minutes or less

That's the route I started going down too, however, there was some complication that I am
just barely recall. I think it had something to do with either trace or other statements buried
in the framework or unhandled errors. However, it didn't take long to find.

My approach was to replace everything with a logger and then inspect that output. Instead
of doing it a compile time though, I would just prefer to modify the tests. I was working
on making the test runner just spin up multiple flash players when you ran it.
