Due to many reasons incremental testing is _not_ reliable and there is
no quick way to fix that. The list of problems we have with
incremental testing is on http://tinyurl.com/5mk7l. Any help would be
appreciated. All four of the issues require a more than introductory
knowledge of BBv1 - for sure certainly more than I have.
It would be nice if somebody would take on some of the issues, because
the learning curve for me would be the same as for any bjam novice.
