actually, we're testing _API_. testsuite doesn't care about details of
implementation (well, almost), and from its point of view it doesn't
matter if API is implemented via daemon or not.

the only issue is environment initialization/startup. currently,
suitable environment for testsuite programs is created by setting PATH
to make new dll be in it, and starting test programs with
CYGWIN_TESTING=1 to make sure different versions of dll won't
interfere. with daemon, i think it'd be enough for the first time to
ask user to start test version of daemon manually (if make is run from
non-admin account).

RC> This isn't an issue today, but...

will see. i'm currently far more concerned about w9x (almost all bugs
in 1.3.3 was w9x-only). and since most of us in this list for some
unknown reason :) prefer to use nt/2000, w9x gets much less testing.
