I think Stephen is right. We need two projects. One for stable
regression testing (and benchmarking?) of scanning tools. Not sure
what kind of infrastructure that one needs. Maybe in-memory stuff will
suffice? Anyway, Psiinon and Chris might be able to merge their suits?
The other project is the demo/training app. As soon as I have
something up on GitHub I'll let you guys know and maybe we can start
adding labs and features together.
