It would be good to have these non-class-library tests in Mauve.

I have a variety of tests that I wrote while writing my JVM (and my JIT), I could contribute these.

This would be cool. There is the JustIce verifer that Enver Haase (hope I have his name right) is writing. It isn't released yet, but it would be nice to test cases for that.
We don't want 'code red' worms eating their way into our JVMs!

Yes, makes sense.
