[potential problems with the tests that had me all freaked out :-)]

No worries :-). Sorry about the out of date documentation -- I've
updated that page so that br_regrtest.py is no longer mentioned.
Basically I rewrote br_regrtest.py into run_tests.py and added and
modified things to fix some problems we were having with br_regrtest. We
should get rid of br_regrtest sometime to get rid of confusion, but
since it's Andrew's work I am afraid to delete it; I don't want him
coming after me :-).

Great that most everything works! I'm not sure what the BioSQL problem
is -- I would like it to fail gracefully in cases where people aren't
setup for it; if you send the error I can try to mess with things so
that it doesn't complain.

Thanks for letting us know about the out of date docs!
