	Wonderful :-) The database bits are a pain to validate without your

	In a nutshell it is a fairly useless maintenance disaster - we are
working hard at producing much more reliable, in-code unit tests that
~every builder and tinderbox can run during the build, and that execute

	The "runs for days" element of the test-suite was mostly a function of
poor design and implementation - and most of the time was spent in
'sleep' calls ;-)

	Cool - well that'd be for Terrence to look into I guess :-)
