	So - the ideal test code that we have in the build is small, fairly
self-contained, builds on all platforms and is fast to execute - so we
can run it every build cycle. That militates against anything using
Java, and hsqldb in particular. Sqlite OTOH is my preferred replacement
for hsqldb, and getting it building and being used in the tree would be
a great start IMHO.

	Heh - so working with Terry & Bernhard to get some VM's setup for
openQA would be a great idea I think; hopefully it's scaleable.
