You said it was fine but implied that I shouldn't be doing it because
you wanted dbaron to do something.

Anyway. I'm having a lot of trouble with #3, because your directory
indexes don't include any of the support files unless they're PNG
or CSS. I'm getting the feeling that manually downloading all your
tests is not going to pick up all the requisite files--especially
since I know you've written tests in the past that rely on files that
aren't even linked from the test because they only trigger on failure
cases.  If you can take the five minutes to zip up your adhoc/css
directory from the server and send them to me or to dbaron or put them
up on your site somewhere, that would make this a whole lot easier, and,
more importantly, more accurate.
