I am hesitant to implement such a system. However, I could possibly
be convinced otherwise.
Mainly, I don't like the idea of writing a framework in Perl (or
Python or Tcl) which is really generating test suite code in Bash. I
think it is again overkill for the purposes of the subversion client
Please note also, that the client test suite is something that
operates independently of the test harness design. I could be wrong,
but that is what I gathered from my discussion with Karl and Ben.
