This should be a general test architecture, and yet allow specific
tests to be done. Introduce a plugin architecture.
An individual test has 4 stages, setup/execute/verify/teardown. Each
plugin gets a chance to run a function at each stage, plus one call
before all the tests are called ("pre" suite) and one after all the
tests are called ("post" suite). In addition, just before each
command is executed, the plugin gets a chance to modify the command
using the "adjust_command" hook. This makes the test suite quite
Future patches will take some functionality out of the tdc.py script and
place it in plugins.
To use the plugins, place the implementation in the plugins directory
and run tdc.py. It will notice the plugins and use them.
