At this point we have a bunch of global hangs that can happen at any
time and almost never happen in the same place twice, and a few
operations that run your system out of resources.

The latter would be easy to develop tests for, but we'd need to set up a
specific machine that auto-runs these large tests daily and uploads the
reports to svn-breakage as most of the developers won't have the
necessary resources on their machines to run these tests.

The former is much more difficult, until someone tracks down and
identify the problem, we won't be able to build a reliable test case,
and I've found that sometimes when I think the hangs have gone away,
they'll show up a couple days later when doing another large repository
operation.
