I don't know either, I could change them to '! -n' if this is desirable.

My master plan is that someday (hopefully not so far away) svntest.sh
could run all layers with static and shared build simultaneously. And this
is the reason to use an argument for FAIL, but...

... indeed this is very true at the moment, so I will go with that
path. (I also feel deep inside of me that current code is somehow a
mess.)

This slipped inside accidentally. It is echoes of my current setup, as
you could guess.

I hope you could bear these changes. =)

In general, if somebody has energy and will to correct my english, I
will be very crateful and I will not feel anyhow offended.

However I understand and confront the fact that this task is like
trying to bring peace on earth or trying to invent a perpetual-motion
machine.

Thanks about the comments!
