We do have some other cases where we need "the other end"
in order to do meaningful testing, but the server in question
is not part of the LSB itself.  This happens specifically
with the tests that need an X server running in order to
meaningfully test the library interfaces that *are* in the
spec, and so we start Xvfb to accomondate that, *but* have
to be really careful that bugs in Xvfb don't "count against"
someone trying to certify.  Is that a useful parallel? You
do need some sort of implementation for certain tests, yes.
