Well - if we have a central testing service we can at the very least report  pass/fail results, even for unreleased applications.  I think we can actually do better than that... but we'll have to see.
 
quit bitching

This wasn't called for.

Not called for, but message well received.  I know that I can be a thorn in the side... I'm just trying to provide an alternate view of the situation.  Without another view, development can just run off in unchecked directions.  Look at what happened with Gnome3 or KDE4 for instance.  I don't want to see libMesh have trouble like that!

In a normal circumstance I would just "get in there" and hack it up to make it better.  In this case, I believe that "making it better" means returning to the old system.  So, I am at a loss for what to do.
