BTW I noticed that you create testdata every time through in a few cases. Is 
there anyreason why you don't check the binary test data into the repository? 
This would improve our build times and it also gets a much more reliable test 
set. Because we no longer have to worry about ourselves buggering up one of 
the ant tasks or something and this task (which is subsequently used to build 
test data) would then cause other uni tests to fail. If we use a known 
quantity then it is much easier to reliably do unit testing? Thoughts?
