It just occurred to me that, since your test suite have a lot of collected
code from multiple unknown source you can't distribute it freely. What
about having the test suite splat in 2, one with the non-distributable
test cases and one with the distributable ones. This way, new test cases
can be added to the test free test suite and over the time, the free test
suite could grow in size to the point to be really useful for other
implementations or for people wanting to develop DMD without breaking
stuff :)

You can even add some clause to the bugzilla stating that any code
published there should be Public Domain (or Boost licenced or whatever
fits the purpose) so you can be sure you can grab any test case in
bugzilla from now on.

What do you think?
