[Gluster-devel] Translator test harness

I'm definitely up for it, not just for the translators, but as Avati 
pointed out, a test harness for the GlusterFS system.  I think, if 
possible, that the translator test harness is really a subclass a 
GlusterFS unit/functional test environment.

I am currently in the process of qualifying some C Unit test frameworks 
(specifically those that provide mock frameworks -- Cmock, cmockery) to 
propose to the GlusterFS community as a foundation to the 
unit/functional tests environment.

What I would like to see, and I still have a hard time finding, is a 
source coverage tool for C.  Anyone know of one?
