Like you are out of town and you have your SEUL CD and want to use a
nearby PC?

Thomas, I sure don't like being on the receiving end of lousy code.  So I
understand that you only want to release stable code. Trial install
sounds like a very handy way to test on users on their machines.  It
may also have some attraction after testing.  Are you saying that we
shouldn't even use it for test purposes?  

I somtimes get these notions that terribly difficult to dislodge (like
testing with trial SEUL). Maybe you can help me what other models for
testing were you thinking of?
