It loads the document and executes the contained BASIC code via a remote 
sequence.  Might actually also work for Python scripts.  Is a bit 
cumbersome, though, as the BASIC testcode is actually XML already (see 
smoketestoo_native/data/*.xml) and returning test status information is 
more of a hack than anything, passing some string that the remote code 
checks for being empty (and if it is not empty, it should indicate what 
went wrong; but debugging in this BASCI scenario is rather a catastrophe).
