I checked some of the mail discussions, but couldn't find any relevant 
details about this. Can you explain what the root-property hack is? I 
also don't understand how Surefire is related to our tests, which are 
run using the junit and ant-unit framework. If I missed some previous 
discussion, please pointme to it and I'll read up on that.

Considering the commits that have been made (even just considering only 
the Ant ones), I don't see how those relate to some plan to refactor 
JUnit tests.
