Hi David,

Thanks for your reviews. I corrected what you suggested. Here's the new
list of patches to review (you probably missed 1 of them):


Also, this one makes -migrate works with the latest Scripttest (I have
no idea in which version it broke, though this fixed my Debian package):

And this one, so that we make sure we use subunit 0.0.18 (-migrate is
incompatible with anything older):

Let's get this fixed and release a new version! :)
