My dream scenario is that willling guinea-pigs could run that
testsuite and hence improve our testing coverage of corner-case on
strange/old hw. If distros could ship the entire thing as a nice
package, that might be helpful - currently you need the sources. But
this is all pretty new (1.1 is the first release with anything
resembling a useful set of tests). So I'm not sure how much effort
this is worth and hence my quick question.
