[Mono-devel-list] planning module "standalone_tests"

With related to XSLT standalone tests, I talked with Andrew and Ben,
and we think about having separate "standalone_tests" module, since
those tests are likely to increate mono's tarball size extraneously
when we just put them inside mcs module.

Things we should note are:

	- In this module we are likely to check all the
	  dependencies into svn (e.g. OASIS XSLT test archive
	  itself, the test result output archives, and so on)

	- We are not moving everything right now.

	- For every standalone tests it should not break existing
	  standalone tests, including our daily-basis tests and
	  buildbot tests (if any, I don't think we have such
	  ones though). For example decent standalone tests might
	  not premise that tested assemblies are in GAC.

	- If required, when running daily tests or auto build,
	  I think we can add some lines to those scripts to
	  checkout those standalone module(s) in a certain
	  directory (e.g. sys.xml/Test/sys.xml.xsl/standalone_tests)
	  and run tests as well as we do now.

If this plan does not sound bad, I'll first svn move xml related
standalone tests to there e.g. "standalone_tests/System.Xml.Xsl".

I appreciate your comments.
