[tycho-dev] Running a custom application for tests


We are investigating migrating a larger Gyrex based application to
Tycho. In Gyrex we've written a test application that helps with
testing. It bootstraps a testable server environment. One thing we
noticed is that this application is not executed when running headless
Surefire plug-in test. I think it's because the HeadlessTestApplication
does not support this.

A while submitted a patch to PDE which implemented support for running
headless applications for unit testing. So I was looking into
possibilities to also implement this in Tycho.

One option is to implement it directly in HeadlessTestApplication.
Another is to simply allow to specify a custom test application to run.
The change is small but it I'm wondering if it's ok to expose this
