I definitely owe some explanation on how to add both Lisp and Java based 
tests to ABCL, so until I discharge my documentation debt, if anyone 
posts tests, I promise that I will make sure they make it into the tree 
in a reasonably timely fashion.

In general, as we fix things it would be nice to add tests so that 
things "stay fixed" in the future.  But I am as guilty as anyone else at 
not sticking to this philosophy.
