I've enclosed the test assertions I developed for all of SpecGL.  I know a 
couple of checkpoints aren't stable, but I'll redo those when they change.

While developing the assertions I noticed a few anomalies in SpecGL.  I've 
told Lynne about them and she is going to change a few things in SpecGL to 
make the conformance requirements consistent with what was intended.

One open question still remains. Ckpoint 10.1 asks for test assertions to 
be provided, but says nothing else about them.  In my test assertion for 
SpecGL I asked for the test assertions to cover all the requirements in the 
specification.  Lynne seems to think that SpecGL may have purposely avoided 
doing that but couldn't remember why.  It seems to me that without this 
additional constraint one could meet this checkpoint by providing exactly 2 
(and no more) test assertions.  I'd like to see this checkpoint tied to the 
requirements in the spec.
