Divorcing varnishtest from varnish-cache

We discussed this at our developer summit in Hamburg yesterday
and I had made some experiments on the train down there.
The suggested plan right now is:
1. Try to gain control of the empty 'vtest' account on github
I've sent them a message. (Do we know any insiders ?)
Alternative name suggestions if this fails are most welcome.
2. Create a vtest repository which contains:
(slimmed down) files from lib/libvarnish
a?????.vtc tests, purged from varnishd usage
My in-train test got it down to 29kLOC.
3. Give developer access to interested & trustworthy parties
We should probably define an informal review/design process, so
that nobody drags the carpet under somebody else by accident.
4. No binary packages/releases will be built at this time
HAproxy and Varnish-Cache can/will import by whatever
means from the new common 'vtest' project, and build
vtest the way which works best for their project.
(V-C obviously have some backwards compat issues)
5. See where that takes us.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
