  Android is similar to the "remote control" app I was going to use, but
seems more complete. My basic idea was to wrap an API around something
like Android, so one can post and query X11 events. So you'd do something
like "push_button{name}", and then do a "query_button{name}" to see if
it changed state.

  As far as making sure the GUI looks right. you can grab a screenshopt, and
do a cmp of the bitmaps, but this isn't very useful if you switch monitors.
(resolution and palette changes)
