It's trivial to do using UDD[0]. 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.
