Yes, it would be easier if for a time it were possible to run against
both the old tests and the new tests.  When I looked at junit last it
was to see what the base requirement for the JVM would be and I
thought reflection would be required but after reading the docs I had
the impression you could potentially get around not having reflection
by specifying the necessary information in a file instead.  No time to
dig this up right now though.

Yes, I think that would be the win-win scenario.
