Thanks for your kind comments :-).

I just had a look at revu-tools.  I can see how these tools would be
useful for REVU but I'm not sure there's a direct connection to

The Xen/LVM virtualisation stuff might be useable for getting better
isolation between packages being examined and the host system but I
suppose that lack of that strong separation isn't a big problem for
the reviewers.
