given that we switched to perl based for "make test" since a 
while on the buildfarm, can we finally remove "make oldtest" from ? Is anyone still using it ? I want to work on more complex 
member server testing and the need to maintain the two test systems is 
quite cumbersome.

There were problems enabling debugging in the new "make test" in the 
past but these issues were all resolved to my knowledge and we also have 
some good pieces of documentation now on the wiki: /Writing_Torture_Tests#Running_tests 
covering a lot of aspects of running tests.

So, any votes against removing make oldtest ?
