Sorry, can we put it into the Bundle?

Because there can be hundreds of tests in @$ra_tests; Remember that the 
first run by default does 10 * #tests. In case of httpd-test it's 910 
strings, at the average of 10 char/string it's about 10K chars, now add 
many iterations and the memory demands are growing fast. Not talking 
about lookups of the 10k keys in the hash.

Any alternatives under 5.6.1?
