	I guess we should add this to the end of the generic all: rule for
compilation, as we should with the smoketest IMHO (at least for Linux
where it runs headless).

	Having said that - it is somewhat annoying all of the graphical thrash
that this introduces: I end up with lots of flickering windows, and some
seem to just hang there ;-) Did I really break -headless somehow with
the new oostart.bin ? [ it works when I try it manually ], and/or do we
need to tweak the tests so they pass that ?

	Ooh ! nice - can you add that to the easy hacks ? and we also have a
3.4 blocker bug here: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35673
that might be nice to have those tracked on.

	Right. The only problem is the graphical thrash I guess.

	Anyhow - great to see this in-place.
