FWIW, the nightly build has been able to run mred-based tests for a
long time now.  But I'm now thinking of removing the whole thing,
since it's testing it only on the main build machine (winooski), so
it doesn't have any advantage over the drdr run (which might be
running the same code -- I sent it to Jay a few weeks ago).
