To be clear... do you plan to use the exisiting mechanism to execute the 
"RUN" lines? This is much preferred over the TestRunner script and there 
are many reasons why we transition away from using TestRunner.

Also, will you preserve the ability to run a subset of tests via 

Will dejagnu still produce one log file or will there be multiples?

How will this impact the nightly testers?

While its cool to run them in parallel, I don't want to lose the 
functionality that we have now with dejagnu/tcl.
