  I'll note that GCC testing is much easier then GDB testing. :-) Much
of the difficulty in DejaGnu was to support interactive applications.
That and Canadian cross testing of remote windows based cross compilers.

  Well, that was actually a design decision. :-) DejaGnu is a framework
for creating a testsuite, the runtest program is just a utility. The
last build farm I built just ran the entire testsuite for each patch to
make sure we didn't break anything, so pretty simple.
