Yes, we did check in the test suites, but as Martin points out, they're broken 
because they use the now defunct TraceOut module (that's the "Ft" stuff.  Mike 
has agreed to tackle some of the task of removing traceouts tonight so I'll 
ask hiom if he can start with the 4DOM test suites.  If so, we'll check in the 
fix tomorrow.

I'll also move the demos as discussed.
