And it is bad.

Let me just make it clear, crystal clear, we should hunt down, kill
and destroy all bugs by our test framework. Mr. Lundblad's biggest
mistake was that when he has cornered that nasty bug somewhere in
libsvn_client, near diff.c, he outsourced testing of this bug to the
foreing shell scripts, and potentially let this bug at large. I won't
never do that. I will stop at absolutely nothing to hunt down,
capture or kill the bugs wherever they are, whatever it takes.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Br, Jani
