We found that the tests in the original NIST test suite were adequate.  We submitted several corrections to the test suite, but we have no other tests to submit.

	I think we had comments from Microsoft some time ago that their tests
	did not greatly enhance the tests NIST had at the time and that MS would
	therefore not contribute. I need to check the archives to make sure.
	
	I'm also convinced that Netscape have some tests, I'll ask off-list for
	contributions.
	
	In any case, I'd personally (for temporal reasons, mainly) go for your
	first option (in addition to trying to get existing tests commited, of
	course).
