Good point.  Perhaps both would be in order.  Did you have any inkling
of how you would integrate "time" into sanity.sh?  Just log it for
review?  I would like to see it in the emails I think - I guess it could
be added to our nightly test wrappers as a fourth test
($builddir/src/sanity.sh -r src/cvs compression...).

Also, this doesn't work if I use random to generate a smaller (c. 24kb)
but uncompressable file for the compression test.  A separate set of
large file tests may be in order.

buf_read_file_eof wraps buf_read_file with a call to stat to set the
size.  (It actually isn't being used right now as far as I can tell.  I
just noticed it and was thinking about removing it before you suggested
it may be needed.)

Durn.  Missed that.  Well, buf_read_file would still avoid one copy
operation on the client.  Shame there's no way to avoid the full load
for text files, but they probably tend to be smaller anyhow.  Binary
files remain rare enough that I wouldn't think a special-case operation
would be useful, either.
