Aha. Wow. I never found that before.
Ehe, how do you use/invoke it?

I tried setting JAVA/JAVAC/GCJ as variables before invoking foo, but in
all cases it fails in weird and wonderful ways either compiling or
running. One issue seems to be that it does want the gnu/testlet/*.java
files, but this is never specified in its classpath or sourcepath.

I admit to be guilty of not documenting my batch_run and runner script.
But a little blurb in the README wouldn't hurt.
If I promise to add something about my scripts, could you add something
about yours? At least how to invoke the thing...

Since it seem to not be integrated with the rest of the tests (but I
might be wrong about this since I couldn't get them working at all) it
might make sense to but it into their own module. Like the verifier
tests and the visual test engine (CVS modules verify and wonka). It
seems this binary compatibility test is useful on its own without any
dependency on the core library tests so we might want to promote it to
its own CVS module that people can just use without worrying about all
the rest. And it would add a new bullet point on the website which makes
the project seem more alive :)
