If anyone puts together a set of tests, and ensures they are
documented well enough to be unambiguous (and hence actually
useful), then I'm sure a lot of people will spring up who are ready
to start running them. Don't be put off by the characteristic
silence that often meets questing suggestions on MD - suggestions
which people do think are a good idea really, but assume you know
that and hence don't necessarily say so.

Personally, if a set of tests appears I'll happily run them against
what we're developing and post the results, if only out of general
