This is hard to say, because the isatest infrastructure is fallen into 
decay over the past few years. We need to catch up and regain the full 
100% of many years ago.

Important requirements:

   * Realistic tests with typical settings. This means that x86 (and not
     x86_64) is used by default. We've recently seen mysterious resource
     problems occasionally, and the automatic testing infrastructure should
     be able to point quickly to relevant changesets.

   * Decent performance measurements and charts: both multi-core run-time
     and heap space requirements.
