For example, testing of GammaDistribution involves some *.csv files,
the largest of which is 300kb. This might not be so huge in the end
(although the svn commit log is quite large!).

BTW, you might notice that I've committed this morning a new *.csv
file. I'm not taking decisions without waiting for everyone's ascent,
I'm merely extending some tests which were already using resource
files. If we decide for another option, I'll change all of this
