So the most of testsuite appears to be written already.  Isn't it nice? :)
I'm perfectly OK to take it as a base for strace testsuite, but it might
be not quite convenient for sandbox.git to pull the whole strace.git just
to use some *-0.c files.

I'm not sure about LTP for the same technical reason: pulling the whole
ltp.git just to use one little subproject is inconvenient.

Maybe it's worth creating a standalone project?
