Does this use dejagnu?  A dejagnu-based test harness is clearly to be
preferred, for better integration with the existing testsuites and tools
that use them, working for all the embedded targets dejagnu supports,
etc., though a non-dejagnu one can always be committed and converted to
dejagnu later.

How much of the proprietary code is large real applications, and how much
is smaller pieces of code ACT might be able to get permission to put in
the testsuite?
