Can you mail me about what is required to host Sputnik and this tool,
in detail? Thanks.

This is a lot of work, so the best way to do it is according to a plan
we all agree with, but almost ceratinly not with any "big bang"
integration. Just lots of patches. The separate tests will have their
own integrity and greater self-consistency for a while. If we get a
single unified suite, we'll know when it is "ready".
