Andrew --

I think that I have this straight, but before I dive deep into this, I
just wanted to confirm with you to make sure I'm right.

- I know you sent one before, but I've made a mess of managing huge
volumes of mail with Outlook, and I can't find the example you sent of
the format that perfbase is expecting for all the test run results. Can
you send the example again? This is the send-all-the-results-at-once
vs. send-one-result-at-a-time issue.

- Apache is going to have a max upload size (2MB? I always forget what
milliways is configured for). The client will need to be able to split
up results that are larger than this. This has two implications:

1. If a single report is larger than this size (e.g., if the output from
an "install MPI" phase is larger than the max upload size), Badness will
ensure. I don't quite know how to handle this.

2. In the test run phase, given that we're switching to sending all the
output from each test individually to sending them all at once, if the
total size of a given report is larger than the max limit, can I
arbitrarily split up the output results and send them in <max_size
chunks? (preserving header/data groupings, of course) I'm assuming
yes, but just wanted to make sure.
