I'll have to let someone who knows more about the licensing issues make
the call about adding the pseudo-random number generator, but the rest
looks good to me.  It might be nice to be able to specify a COUNT value,
but defining RUN_ALL_COMPAT_TESTS to get a large number (as implemented)
is probably sufficient.

Does this cover the same functionality as testsuite/consistency.vlad?
If so then perhaps we could remove that, but it's not my call.
