Of course, you are right.  Unfortunately, last time I suggest
contributing stuff to mauve - I wrote a "FullTestHarness" some time ago,
which is all Java - I was met with apathy :-(   And in the next couple
of days I'll be laying my dirty paws on the JCK so I'm not sure if any
tests written after that would be in the best interests (I'm also under
commercial constraints, but my Employer would be open to negotiation).
I am still happy, however, to comment on the suitability and
organisation of such tests added - and certainly still use it.

Peter
