      Someone from serviceability should evaluate this test. It may not be needed.

      re: LingeredAppTest, I agree that the test doesn't look very useful, yet I'd remind that the goal of this (and other test in /test/lib-test) is to (sanity) test testlibrary in order to easily spot bugs in testlibrary in a clear manner so one would not have to investigate failures of actual "product" tests and go thru their sometimes convoluted logic just to find out that the problem was in LingeredApp. w/ that being said, this test can do a better job in testing LingeredApp, so I'll file a JBS ticket against hotspo/svc to evaluate/improve/discuss the fate of the test.
