Well, in the "testing" mode, the supervision tree really isn't as
important as in production mode - we just need all the executables
that are behind the erlang services up and running.  So far it looks
like using terminate_child to swap modes is the easiest thing... I
just wanted to check and see if the idea was not completely abhorrent
to right minded Erlang programmers.

Thank you
