Yes - we'll do this.  This test tool shed should be used for testing ( we'll 
keep it available indefinitely ) much like the Galaxy test instance we host 
here at Penn State.  Fell free to mess with anything you want.  Please report 
bugs and I'll fix them as fast as possible.  Very soon there will be a main 
production tool shed available at http://toolshed.g2.bx.psu.edu.
