Thanks for cleaning up after me - should've updated that when I added

We're doing the design by trial and error.  We were simply unable to
implement the tests we wanted in DejaGNU/Tcl/Expect;  we weren't sure if
Python worked either, but it does seem so... just getting stuff in shape
now, it'll show up on the ML soon-ish I guess.

(There wasn't really much to report here so far, that's all that is to
this.  You didn't miss anything, there was no mail about the design
because there was no design phase...)
