Brilliant! Thanks for all your work on this Thomas.

And another request for more Tinderbox build servers. Anyone?

I think there is a bit of a reorg around the testing because there are  
4 types of testing at the moment:
   - plugin perl tests with internal services with input variables  
   - plugin perl tests with external internet services (check_ntp,  
some check_http)
   - libtap tests (utils_*.c)
   - controlled perl tests (check_http)

There needs to be a bit of consolidation around this., though I'm not  
entirely clear on what that is yet.
