I agree with Siggy. Looking at the tests for GP alone is a fair chunk of work, let 
alone the entire library. Ideally, people who have seen and worked with these 
demo apps before should be testing them. Still, some quick scouring is likely 
worth the effort.

With the information space (or search space as Koza calls it) of GC being so 
huge, I don't think any set of deterministic standard tests can replace testing 
on the diversity of platforms and situations where ECJ is used.

Still, one must start some place.
