Interesting idea. The local daemon would accept requests as if it was  
over the network and respond accordingly. However, it will probably  
mean that the local daemon will end up looking like the actual  
service, in which case we should just use an actual service on the  
internet to run against.

I've been thinking that we need to enhance the testcases and get more  
continuous builds. Have spoken to Peter Bray about this, but there's  
not much movement, so I'm interested in getting a Tinderbox setup for  
this. Will work on this over the next few weeks.
