As was said on the previous telecon, neither myself nor James have any 
objection to approving the test as is; however, I still think we do need 
to design the harness to deal with everything it needs to do initially, 
as a number of test harness really suffer from having things like 
support for async tests hacked on to them at a later date. This will 
mean moving tests already approved over to a new harness at a later 
date, and that we probably don't want to approve large test suites until 
we know what the API will be.
