Hi Mo... I haven't looked closely at this package yet. It looks like
you've written a system that is an alternative to our 'make check'
rule -- it walks through the source tree, runs any test scripts it can
find, logs them, and looks for regression problems. Is that right?

My question is: if this is indeed what you've written, is the system
able to run all of our C-library API tests, as well as our external
python tests? If so, that's great... all of our existing tests
programs have the same user interface anyway. It shouldn't be hard to

The reason I ask is that your sample 'help subcommand' tests are
written in tcl like the rest of your system. Looking quickly over
them, I wasn't able to tell if your system is language-unbiased about
the tests it runs.
