I will grow, as new tests are added to the database. We can have a monthly
cleanup task to get rid of old tests (and maybe remember some fun stats
while we're at it).

There's no need for shell access -- we just need to trigger the scrip.
Doing it once per month is a bit too seldom. We can run the script
every day, and make it smart to not do anything if the DB has not been
updated. This is easy to do.

Perfect. As long as we don't have to put it in CVS, things are simple.
The best would be for the script to just output to stdout, and you
redirect that where you need to when you install it.
