Of course, the non-regression tests are largely limited by my unability
to automate my fingers while sleeping :p.

I ran the obvious consumers/providers (targa, tsp_stub_server,
tsp_bb_provider, ...) and it seemed to work fine, but we'll only catch
obvious breakeages with this method. [BTW Stephane, thanks for the
automated compile, I now anxiously check gmail while hacking TSP :)]

Distributed tests are definely something we need to work on. One way to
contribute, besides sponsoring the development of the TSP tests, would be
to use and improve dtest in your projects. 

Eg. if you've got an old application that you want to improve, why
not develop a battery of tests with dtest, so that you can catch

We'll try to use it to test an in-house project, but time limits are
tight. I hope I'll be able to work on it soon. Did you manage to launch
the sample tests? What do you think about it overall?

note also that, while not improving the software, beer is cool too :)
