Hi Mike,
  Yes, this is for the subversion test suite.....I did look into the
run_and_verify_* functions... it was useful....rather essential to....;-)
  But my question is different....it relates to the logic to be used....
To give a short background,
subversion/tests/clients/cmdline/trans_tests.py says ...

# try to check out head somewhere else. See seg fault.

  I feel that it would be good to check the contents of the checked out
file, rather than just 'catch'ing a seg-fault.... I wanted others'
opinion on this....
  Pl. let me know what you think.

Regards,
Madan.
