:-( Python makes life so much easier in this case.

Theoretically it should work. And you might not need to copy the entire
thing over. I think you can get away with just copying the generated
"bin" directory which has all the test output files (*.output, *.run,
*.test). Or if you can manage it an NFS mount might be worth it.

You'll also need to have the --comment file and possibly the --timestamp
file, on the other machine.

They would look like they are coming from an OSX machine. But the script
supports overriding that with a --platform=Whatever option.
