Something to keep in mind is that we'll probably end up with a large
number of test documents, 200+ MB.  Not all of them will be large.
But if we want to have good test coverage then we'll need test
documents to cover all areas, for ODF, MS Binaries and OOXML.  So this
will grow, over time, to a large test set.

This leads to four questions:

1) Should we be testing large/complex documents?

I think the answer is "yes".

2) Should such test documents be in SVN?

I think they should.

3) Should these documents be in the same source tree with the rest of
the code that is downloaded by default for a build?

Maybe not.  Unless they are needed for a smoke test that should be run
by every developer.  But if not, maybe they should be stored in its
own tree, like ooo/test/trunk or something like that.

4) Should these documents be included in the source distribution?

Probably depends on the answer to question 3.  Maybe, maybe not.  Or
maybe we have a separate source distribution artifact only for
test-related files?
