My intention about test is the following:
You may want to test partial updates - i.e. test an update from 1.6 to
1.7.  There may be a speed difference in the way the two programs do the
update checks, as compared to downloading all the files at once.
Yes, this is probably the most useful test since I expect that this is 
the most common usage. If one needs to go from scratch there are tar- 
balls of the source that can be downloaded and then cvsup/rsync can be 
used to get to latest.

But don't let that stop you from testing going from scratch also.
