You didn't, *I* did :)

Well understood.

I'd like to help you understand anything you want to understand
about that.

There are various points of view about the test suite even
amongst developers. What it represents, how we should/could
improve it, how we use it, etc.

As far as multi-platform usage is concerned, the history is still
to be written though :D

I totally share that point of view and I'm glad you mention it,
for some kind of problems I even think that openness of the
community and its willing to help is even more important than the
tools used.
