And the other major selling point, the ability to run multiple tests
in parallel, wouldn't help me much, so I keep forgetting about it.
Oops.  Thanks Loren for unknowingly reminding me of that in his recent
posting about QMTest :-)

That's definitely an interesting feature, and one that I've wanted in
DejaGNU for a while, until I realized that parallel testing didn't
improve time at all on my uni-processor Athlon box.  But in the cases
where it would actually make a difference in multi-processor machines,
e.g. when testing a toolchain with dozens of multilibs, I can already
test in parallel with a Makefile hack introduced a while ago.
