I'm setting up tinderbox, but as it's my home box, expect some 
discontinuity :)
It would be great to have other types of UPS for testing.

As for the tinderbox setup, I have a few remarks. Maybe I should open 
some bug reports?
1. Didn't you switch to Subversion? It's written CVS all over 
2. I think some tests have not been migrated to the I guess new 
variables standard (that is to say NP_... all upper case), and thus 
leads to some duplicates
3. There is no dependency on libssl for check_http, but it will fail 
(certificate checking) if not installed
4. apple.com's IP address has changed (now:
Plus it's not the best host to check, as its reverse has 134 pointers, 
thus the test may vary :)
