      Revamp the testsuite framework.  The previous framework was an
      experiment that got a little out of control - a whole new language
      with an interpreter written in Haskell was rather heavyweight and left
      us with a maintenance problem.
      So the new test driver is written in Python.  The downside is that you
      need Python to run the testsuite, but we don't think that's too big a
      problem since it only affects developers and Python installs pretty
      easily onto everything these days.
        - 790 lines of Python, vs. 5300 lines of Haskell + 720 lines of
          <strange made-up language>.
        - the framework supports running tests in various "ways", which should
          catch more bugs.  By default, each test is run in three ways:
          normal, -O, and -O -fasm.  Additionally, if profiling libraries
          have been built, another way (-O -prof -auto-all) is added.  I plan
          to also add a 'GHCi' way.
          Running tests multiple ways has already shown up some new bugs!
        - documentation is in the README file and is somewhat improved.
        - the framework is rather less GHC-specific, and could without much
          difficulty be coaxed into using other compilers.  Most of the
          GHC-specificness is in a separate configuration file (config/ghc).
      Things may need a while to settle down.  Expect some unexpected

      Turns out that we *did* have a test that would have shown up the
      DsForeign bug (rev. 1.70 of ghc/compiler/deSugar/DsForeign.lhs) but it
      was disabled because it didn't quite work with the current test
      I've hacked the framework a bit and hopefully knocked the test into
      shape so we shouldn't get the same problem again.
      MERGE TO STABLE after testing in HEAD

      Put the source file *before* any extra options for this test on the
      command line.  That way we can compile extra files that depend on
      things created by compiling the original source (eg. _stub files for
      multi-file FFI tests).
