charm testing framework - partial solution?

Hey, so testing charms correctly is hard.  What about a partial solution 
to automated charm testing that can be delivered sooner?

There's actually quite a bit of value in just insuring that install 
hooks complete.

I think it's worth dedicating a system to just do regular deploys, wait 
for a corresponding 'started' state, and report on the outcome... no 
stacks, no relations.  We'll obviously need to build on this over time, 
but just this one step would vastly improve the maintainability of the 
charm store.
