this sounds really useful, i'd be interested in seeing it too. if
you need a second set of eyes to look over the code i'll volunteer
to do so.

sounds like a good idea. i have little (er, no) experience with
various regression/test suites, so i think leading by example
will be the best way to get me to come along :)

i need to double check where things have been left off with the
np_runcmd stuff... istr a small number andreas' patched plugins
having bugs, and as a result not all plugins are using the
runcmd function. i suppose it's not the end of the world
if the plugins are released as is though, perhaps it's more of an
aesthetic thing to me.
