cool - that is what I was assuming when I saw *everything* had the word 
Test as a prefix :)

I'm also glad to hear that they do not have to be unittest based - I was 
thinking that to get a good baseline for profiling the test would be run 
outside of the unittest frame work.

What I've got so far is a couple stress tests for repository creation 
and tear-down - now to write a small script to compare a repository 
directory and it's contents to another.
