Actually, I don't mind about the exact details. I'm happy with all that
allows us to specify some heidi-file and say "set testing to that file".
That were just two ideas I have in my mind - but if you prefer something
different, I don't mind either.

I would prefer if the time shift between "call the interface-script" and
"appears in the database" is minimal - just for the single reason that
run-time of britney varies a lot, and I always consider it useful being
able to use dak ls directly after britney to see what *really* migrated
and what not. (Of course, you could schedule a cronjob every 5 minutes -
on the other hand, if it runs as user dak on a certain file, why not do
that via sudo - I don't see the large difference?)
