This is a nice idea.  But can we please have this use the same random
seed each time, and/or report the seed ?  Otherwise you can get a very
annoying situation where a test fails but you can't repro it...

I think it would be better, TBH, if you separated out the test
generation from the execution.  check-xl-vif-parse et al have the test
data as an annex to the harness material, but you could have it in a
separate file which you could have a script to generate.

Also the use of "sleep 1" needs to go.
