It's trivial to do using UDD. Now, the question is whether we want
another dependency on UDD in the PTS. And if we should consolidate the
various parts that are now UDD-dependent. For example, we could query
UDD directly at the beginning of a PTS run, instead of relying on CGIs
and on parsing of text files.
