None of my tests are checked in. It would take significant work to make 
them fit the test suite's requirements: there are over 900 tests in my CSS 
folder alone, and they all need verifying against the latest spec text; at 
10 minutes per test, would probably take someone intimately familiar with 
the spec and the tests about five weeks of solid work, minimum. Several of 
the tests actually depend on complicated server-side configuration, too, 
which would make this even more complex.

Having said that, I do believe we should use these tests. If we can find 
someone to do the work, and I'd be happy to help them in an advisory role.

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
