  I dislike the check API for being overly terse. Being the author of
DejaGnu (and the GCC, GDB, Binutils testsuites), I prefer that API of
course. :-) We're not going to depreciate the DejaGnu testing API, so
just get used to it. You don't have to use it, and both APIs co-exist
just fine. The other big point about using the DejaGnu API is that  then
our testsuites automatically support cross testing on embedded
platforms. Although we currently don't use this feature, we could, and
in the future we might.

  Which can be done with the DejaGnu API as well. I'm really into not
arguing about this... Just please accept that we use both APIs, and will
continue to do so.
