I forgot to mention in my previous mail -- if (when?) we change the 
testing format we're probably going to want a way to convert all of
the other tests in p6rules (i.e., the ones that didn't come from 
're_tests').  It will probably be just as easy, if not easier, to
convert the manually edited re_tests.t file using whatever converter
we come up with then.

Just a thought.
