where should it go?

once the dependencies (to run the test) are sorted out, they should
get written down in a file dropped the same place the sources go

Sometimes the typos can be quite amusing... it's in the future,
but it's still too old.  That's /so/ GNOME somehow.... :-)

It's not like this question hasn't come up before, but how are we
going to handle the mismatch between the versions LSB currently
describes, and the newer versions required by this work?

It's not, of course, a question unique to atspi, you just are
helping to push this one case of it to the forefront.
