PostGIS tests need to be rewritten

Description

With the demise of feathers.leeds.ac.uk (the former postgis_test database), we've lost the ability to perform tests on the PostGIS plugin (most tests are disabled). Refractions will be hosting the replacement PostGIS implementation, but without the original data from feathers, the tests will need to rewritten and/or database populated.

"We lost the geotools test server (called feathers) some months ago, so
PostGIS QA tests have not been run for a while. I have started setting
up some new read only tests, and we have connection information for a
scratch database we can use for read/write tests.

We have backed out the changes that caused the Feature Type problems, it
sounds like there is also a BBox problem for WMS that I have not heard
more details about.

So what I really should do is ask for help ... the database connection
information is here:
-<http://svn.geotools.org/geotools/branches/aggregates/plugin/postgis/test/org/geotools/data/postgis/demo-bc-fixture.properties - http://svn.geotools.org/geotools/branches/aggregates/plugin/postgis/test/org/geotools/data/postgis/demo-bc-fixture.properties>
-<http://svn.geotools.org/geotools/branches/aggregates/plugin/postgis/test/org/geotools/data/postgis/geotools-test-fixture.properties - http://svn.geotools.org/geotools/branches/aggregates/plugin/postgis/test/org/geotools/data/postgis/geotools-test-fixture.properties>
-<http://svn.geotools.org/geotools/branches/aggregates/plugin/postgis/test/org/geotools/data/postgis/fixture.properties - http://svn.geotools.org/geotools/branches/aggregates/plugin/postgis/test/org/geotools/data/postgis/fixture.properties>

Ideas:
1. We can port the PostGisDataStoreAPI test over to fixture.properties
(so it will only run against a local postgis install?)
2. PostgisDataStoreTest against geotools-test.fixture
3. Create some kind of PostgisDataStoreReadonly test against
demo-bc-fixture.properties

Once again if anyone can find the contents that used to be on feathers
it will save us rewriting PostgisDataStoreTest.

UDIG has its own subclass of the PostGIS DataStore, it was my attempt to
merge the optimizations back to geotools that created these problems (should not of even tried without test cases)."

---------------------
90% tests pass now, however i still had to disable some of the transaction tests, not sure if they are written correctly, if jody could have a look at them that would be great.
