I still don't understand why you want to rebuild httpd. You don't plan
to test against HEAD, do you?

Don't look at the sitze, just grep the contents of LOG_apr_up with
/^[AUP]\ [A-Za-z]/. If you get any matches, something changed in the repo.

Because if something goes wrong with the tests, I have the version that
failed right there for debugging. Otherwise I'd have to rebuild
everything in order to track down a bug. That's why I clean up those
directories at the _beginning_ of a test run, not at the end.

I still strongly suggest against putting the ramdisk logic in the
svntest files. Instead, move obj-sh and obj-st to a subdirectory (say,
obj/st and obj/sh), then just mount obj to tempfs in a wrapper script.
Ramdisk management is way too system-specific.

That was about 250 Watts, at a guess. :-)
