I am sorry, I still don't understand. What will be those commands?
What will be their results? How would we decide what toolsets to use?
How would we decide what tests to run? What do we need to know about
the slave to correctly issue the commands? What means "failed" or
"succeded" for commands? Result code is not very helpful if there are
some known failing tests.
