This patch was authored by Gavin A.  I broke it out into patch format, in case some people found that more useful than git.

URL: http://yyz.us/bitcoin/patch.bitcoin-testnetwork

For the future, I hope to add a "-testnetwork" switch which will enable network switching without recompilation.

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.
