Godmar> What is newlib, if I may ask?  In what language is it implemented?

newlib is a C library implementation (in C).

I just really don't want to have to write a description for every
test.  It just seems like a pain to me.

I'm willing to go along with everybody if the consensus is against me,

Godmar> See also my comments about the Thread.interrupt tests.

I read this.  It struck me that this kind of checking isn't required
for the large majority of tests.  I'd rather see the thread test
itself implement the machinery it needs to run reliably.

This can be put into a helper file if several tests require similar
functionality, now that Anthony wrote the "Uses" code.
