Sorry cannot help there specifically, apart from noting that most of the rest
of testdesign.txt doesn't apply any more, since we are heading for the simpler
'assert'-based scheme.

Which reminds me to ask you how ready for PyPy you think the test conversion
tool is.  If I remember correctly the point still holding us was different:
how to actually run app-level tests.  I don't remember where we left the
question.  In fact, pypy/tool/pypyutest.py looks like the solution (which we
hacked in the post-EuroPython days) but I don't remember how complete that is.

A bientôt,
