Hey, that sounds like fun, maybe we should! Though I'm rather  
confident Apache::Test doesn't have a RDF command language, and these  
few scripts I did certainly don't have load testing or other fancy  
features ;-)

Regardless of the relative merits of perl, Apache::Test is not  
exactly userfriendly from where I'm sitting. I just spent over an  
hour and a half trying to learn about Apache::Test and I still don't  
even have a "hello, world!" equivalent running. Frustration! It fails  
my personal "simple things should be simple" test...

it took me a lot less time to just write... 

...which seems to be roughly wherein the overlap with Apache::Test is  

But of course I'm happy to see things done "properly"! If someone  
could help make it easy enough for me to write roughly things like 

in perl (or whatever; I haven't learned a lot of Lua just yet for  
example ;-)), I'll go and reinstall darwinports so that my perl is  
less broken and re-read that entire long boring ill-formatted out- 
dated Apache::Test manual.
