For friday's test session, I was considering using Zanshin to write 
some functionality tests against Cosmo.  We could test various WebDAV 
and CalDAV error cases like the client sending a non-XML body with a 
PROPFIND, bogus format headers, etc.  That would be one way to avoid 
java and still test Cosmo :)
