I'm on it. Darin was kind of enough to review a change to Skipped enabling a 
lot of text tests that we currently pass. During the next weeks I'm attempting 
to classify the tests as:

	- working
	- crashing/timeout
	- generates a new result
	- need implementation in API/DRT.

then enable the working tests, fix the crashing, add API and DRT to be able to 
test. The tests generating new results needs to be diffed against the other 
ports to see if the results are reasonable.

Help on this task is welcome. I have fixed some bugs in the curl backend 
already, some of the API/DRT features/issues are quite easy, some of the 
crashes/DOS could be fun to hack on.
