I am not sure the student can write it or not.  Actually, I don't have
experience with it. :(  My testsuite is written by Michael.
So maybe Michael can be the mentor.  But I didn't get his mail a long
time.  I am not sure he can answer us or not.

And maybe we can just let the student test reverse debug with hand.
Or let a people that have experience on write testsuite to be the
mentor.  If he doesn't have the experience on reverse debug, I can
help him.
