[petsc-dev] Introducing new "test harness" to PETSc

Per your request, Matt, there is documentation in the developers
manual.  The section is "PETSc Test description language".

There is more documentation in the user manual on some of the ways of 
running the test harness as well, but it didn't keep up with 
development.  Since I'm not sure that we've completely settled on
everything there, I'm waiting to update that part, but the targets
in Makefile and gmakefile should be relatively straightforward and
well-commented when they are not.
