I'm interested in a nice regression suite.
I've been doing some OpenLDAP stuff recently and they have (what  
seems like) 2 hours worth of tests that occur once you build the  
For a long time, I've been meaning to look at how they do it and see  
if a similar approach could be used with Cyrus IMAPd, but other
