For code wanting to test HPD interactions (as found in frysk.hpd.Test*) 
I've added the class frysk.hpd.HpdTestbed which extends Expect.  This 
class both creates an instance of the HPD wrapped up in Expect and 
provides easier / more friendly expect methods vis:

-> they detect wrong-output+PROMPT; no longer is there a 5 second 
timeout before things fail
-> the failure message includes what was expected and what was in the 
buffer - easier to debug

For instance:

    public void testUnattached() {
        e = new HpdTestbed();
        // Add with no process; shouldn't crash.
        e.sendCommandExpectPrompt("print 2+2", "5\r\n");

$ ./TestRunner frysk.hpd.TestPrint.testUnattached
Running testUnattached(frysk.hpd.TestPrint) ...FAIL
  junit.framework.AssertionFailedError: sent: <print 2+2> expecting: <5
 > got: <print 2+2
(fhpd) >

Note that this class isn't intended for testing HPD invocation, or 
option parser (as done by the tests in frysk.bindir.TestHpd); as some 
point this class is going to get changed to run HPD as a thread in
