If there's general interest in incorporating the test suite I have,
I'd be happy to try and set something up.

There's a perl component in it though...for setting up a test database
against which the regression tests are run. I'm not sure how people
feel about adding a perl dependency to the mix.

My original idea was to have the tests run via a 'make test, but this
was not possible since GNATS needs to be (partly) installed in order
to run...the binaries all have a hard-wired reference to the 'databases'
file. We could fairly easily overcome this by modifying the binaries
to allow the databases file to be supplied...either by environment
variable or command line option (or both).

The perl requirement could perhaps, be resolved, by simply committing
the generated database to the mix.
