   I think that these tests will be complicated, and I agree that they 
will probably be manual.  I wouldn't bother with the .txml files and 
xslt transformations (which are intended to generalize the tests for 
as-yet-unseen platforms).  Whatever test format you and David agree on 
will be fine.  If a third person comes along and wants to run them, we 
can try to figure out how to generalize them at that time.
