Just to make sure we are on the same page.
I know that we run this at the beginning of the suitea single test
which is run by do_test.
The suggestion Grant had that I was proposing was that when an entire
suite is run having the option of stoping and restarting chandler
with a fresh repository in between each test in the suite. Sorry if
that wasn't clear.
Also, I'm suggesting this as an _option_, not the default run process
for a functional suite. There is more value, in my opinion, in
running the entire suite on the same repository in the same chandler
instance, but I think this option could help for debugging.
